Biography/HistoryOne of the first settlers in Fargo, N.D. was Jacob Lowell, who homesteaded on land on the south edge of the city. He built a large two story brick Italianate house on his property in 1887. Lowell served as the first states attorney for Cass County. About 1908, Lowell sold the house to Judge N.C. Young and his wife Ida. Judge Young was a North Dakota Supreme Court Justice who has a law practice in Fargo. After Judge Young died in 1923, his wife continued to live in the house until 1935, when it was sold to Paul B. Greving, who extensively remodeled the house. After Mr. Greving died, his son took ownership and had the house torn down in 1972, to make way for 36 unit apartment complex.
