Biography/HistoryThe house was built between 1886 and 1887 for Alfred L Moody, who operated a popular Fargo department store for fifty-five years. After Moody died in 1943, the home belonged to Alex W. Henkel, a Department Manager for the Ford Motor Co. In 1954, Mr. Henkel moved out and the home was occupied by a series of different tenants. The home was dismantled about 1966 to make way for the Blue Cross Blue Shield building, later occupied by WDAY.
"McHench has sold the south half of the block on which his residence is located on Eighth street, 70x140, for $2, 500, to A. L. Moody, who proposes to build a nice residence this spring. The property is cheap at $3, 500, and Mr. Moody is to be congratulated, not only in the purchase, but in securing a corner on the nicest residence street in the city." - Daily Argus, January 11, 1886, p. 2.
