McKenzie County History
Founded April 20, 1905

The county is named after early North Dakota politician Alexander McKenzie. 

McKenzie County was first created by the March 8, 1883 Dakota Territory legislature but eliminated in 1891 due to a lack of settlement. The county was then recreated by the 1905 state legislature.


In terms of area, it is the largest county in the state.

Its county seat is Watford City.
The county seat before Watford City was Alexander from 1905 to 1907 and Schafer from 1907 to 1941.
