Lost River is a multi-phased, master-planned development. This 207.97-acre property, which is located inside of the Sheyenne Diversion flood reduction project, features a long stretch of the Sheyenne River, mature forests, abandoned river bed (“Lost River”), open meadows, and prairie. The master plan (PDF, 1.91 MB) was designed to work with and preserve the natural features of the site, maximize privacy for homeowners, and create community amenities.
The streets were themed after North Dakota nature, except Didrick Drive and Mamie’s Way, which were named after Didrick and Mamie Samuelson. Didrick and Mamie lived on the Samuelson farmstead, where Boxelder Circle is now located. Several years after the Lost River property was lost by way of a foreclosure sale in the latter part of the Great Depression, Didrick and Mamie saved enough money to purchase the property back from the bank, keeping the land in the Samuelson family. Didrick was the post-master in Horace for over 40 years.
The first phase of Lost River (which is made up of the residential lots in Lost River Addition, and all of the Second, Third, and Fourth Additions) was constructed in 2017.
