Renville County InformationRenville County

Renville CountyRenville County is another of the northern North Dakota counties which were created, lost their independence to Ward County amd then regained it in the early 1900s as part of the general administrative reorganization in this part of the state.

The current Renville county officially came into being in 1910, named after either Gabriel Renville, a fur trader, or the more well-known frontier personality Joseph Renville.

The county is just under 900 square miles in size and has a population of 2,470, according to the last census. The population peaked in the 1920s with nearly 7,500 inhabitants.

The county seat is located in Mohall, the city which had led the campaign for independence from what was termed 'Imperial' Ward County (containing the large population center of Minot and the rival city of Kenmare) at the start of the 20th century.

Renville County is surrounded by Canada to the north, by Bottineau County and McHenry County to the east, by Ward County to the south and by Burke County to the east.
