The ship was built at Hawley, MN, which is on one of the "beaches" of the extinct
Lake Agassiz glacial lake. The whole Red River Valley is still a big
wheat-producing area (it's flat, flat, flat), while the area around Hawley, which
has hills (although only 19 miles from Fargo-Moorhead), is indeed known for its
potato production. Lots of potato chip factories. Sugar beets is the other big
crop around here (Crystal Sugar is in Moorhead). KG
