HISTORY

High Third was Minot’s red-light district in the early twentieth century. It was located on a four block section of Third Street SW between what is now Burdick Expressway and First Avenue SW, going up South Hill. The neighborhood remained the city's red-light district into the 1960s. High Third was known for the presence of gambling, prostitution and alcohol during prohibition. During prohibition, the illegal activities associated with the High Third neighborhood helped earn Minot the nickname Little Chicago. We wanted to bring in some history from the High Third days, thus bringing in some local neighborhood establishments from High Third District and giving them a new presence in Minot today.

BOSTOW (RESTAURANT LEVEL)

The Bostow Service Station was a Mobil franchise gas station that was located on the present site of The Flower Box, owned by the Bostow family from 1949 to 1969. Bostow is the first storey at High Third, boasting a dining area for customers of all ages. Watch as our chefs beautifully whip up your favorite gastropub grubs in our open-concept kitchen.
