Geography[edit]

Mayville sits in the fertile Red River Valley on the banks of the Goose River. The Valley was once a part of glacial Lake Agassiz. As the glacier receded, it left the land very flat, but also very rich. The area around Mayville is prime agricultural land.

In the summer of 2006, the community celebrated the city's 125th anniversary.
