|Biography/History||The 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.
