Forada is a historic railroad town located in Douglas County, just eight miles south of Alexandria.
When the Soo Line Railroad determined that another station was needed between Glenwood and Alexandria in 1902, a surveyor discovered the beautiful shore of Maple Lake. He was given the privilege of naming the station and named it after his wife, Ada. After being incorporated in 1905, Forada thrived for several years, establishing a hardware store, two grocery stores and several other businesses. As transportation continued to improve, Forada’s growth dwindled while Glenwood and Alexandria flourished. Currently there are roughly 185 people living in the city of Forada.
Otter Tail Power Company serves as the city’s electricity provider, while CenturyLink provides the city’s telephone services. Forada is served by the Alexandria Post Office.
The railroad, which is now owned by Canadian Pacific, still runs through Forada several times a day on its way to Canada and Northern Minnesota. The city is known for its annual summer celebration, “Forada Days”, which began in 2003. It is also home to a nine hole golf course, a volunteer Fire Department, First Responders, and several other social clubs.
