Red River Township was organized in 1880 and officially in 1881. P. M. Peterson farmed at Moorhead in the 1870's. In those days the grain binders tied the bundles with wire. When the three years of cinch bugs chased the Goodhue County Swedes up to Kittson County in 1880, P. M. who immigrated to Moorhead a few years before, got the urge to join his friends in Red River Township. He bought land in Sec. 1-161, in 1882, but went back to Moorhead for the winter. In 1883, he tried to drive up with a load of lumber for a shanty, his plow and two mules and a horse, but got stuck so many times that he drove down to the river, hailed a steamboat an drove aboard. The Captain let him off two miles west of Sec. 1. A schoolhouse and a store were built in the community, which was called Mattson P.O. Bowesmont was located on the Dakota River bank, but later moved to the railroad. P. M. drove back to Moorhead in the fall. Next spring he loaded all his goods on a railroad car and settled down for good and married Mathilda Johansdotter.
