Renville County
'Renville County was named for Gabriel Renville, a pioneer trader who lived in that region; the county was created by a vote of the people of the northeastern part of Ward county at an election held November 30, 1908. On July 6, 1910, an executiv proclamation formally recognized the election and legally established the county with Mohall as the county seat. The general characteristics of Ward county apply to Renville. It is well populated with an industrious class of settlers.' Source: North Dakota Blue Book -- 1942
