McHenry County, North Dakota
The Territorial legislature formed McHenry County in 1873 from part of Bottineau County. The name comes from James McHenry, an early settler of Vermillion, South Dakota. The county government was first organized on October 15, 1884. Before becoming Towner in 1886, the county seat was Villard from 1884 to 1885 and Scriptown from 1885 to 1886. Both former seats are now ghost towns.

Its county seat is Towner.
