For a long time only indigenous peoples resided within the area we now call North Dakota. With the expansions of railroads into the Dakota territories and military trails, expansion of Anglo-Saxon settlers became inevitable for the region. By 1873, Wells County, where Hurdsfield North Dakota resides, was established. And by 1903 Hurdsfield was founded as a town which is located near the middle of the state. Although the town is over 100 years old, as of the 2010 census, Hurdsfield had only 84 residents. Hurdsfield has a humid continental climate that means that summers can be very hot with a lot of humidity, and where winters can be extremely cold.
