Sawyer, North Dakota is a small town fifteen miles southeast of Minot.  It is located along the Mouse River and close to a long stretch of railroad tracks; this transportation access provided much of the motivation for the small town's settlement.  Sawyer owes its rapid population growth at the start of the twentieth century to the railroad and the businesses located on Main Street (today's Dakota Avenue).
