Creation: Not earlier than 1937 - Approximately 1942 (Sign features early style Great Northern logo with a forward-facing goat, adopted in 1921. Earliest Winter Carnival was held after adoption of that logo was in 1937. Latest carnival held before 1946 logo change was in 1942. Sign could have been used - as opposed to made - until 1970, when Great Northern became a part of the Burlington Northern Railroad.)
