Larimore is a city in Grand Forks County. It is located 3 miles south of the junction of US Highway 2 and North Dakota Highway 18, and the population is 1,346. Larimore was founded in 1881. In rural Larimore, population density is higher east of the town than towards the west. Although the area has lost farming households throughout many decades, many farms have been turned into horse ranches, hobby farms, or simply homesteads for commuters who wish to have more area than they would otherwise have in town.
