Kilbourne Group is a team committed to honoring, supporting, and growing downtown Fargo. We believe in retaining and carrying forward the history of Fargo through thought leadership, the restoration of historic buildings and the creation of new buildings that honor our heritage while inspiring the future.

At Kilbourne Group, we honor and respect those who built our city by renovating and repurposing amazing historic structures. We are grateful for all who contribute their time, passion and resources toward reinvigorating downtown. Our team seeks to be daily inspiration for all who desire to help our Metro area reach its fullest potential for all its citizens.

Doug Burgum‘s first experience with downtown renovation and redevelopment occurred when he stepped in to rescue the 70,000-square-foot Northern School Supply building from an imminent wrecking ball in 2000. In November 2015, The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead told the story in their feature article, Realization on a Rooftop, about Kilbourne Group’s inspiration and vision.
