Norman County was organized on February 17, 1881, from a part of Polk County, which in turn had been a part of Pembina County. The name was chosen because of the great number of Norwegian immigrants who settled in the county.

Norman County is located in the Red River Valley of Minnesota, one of the great farming regions of the world. To the east it is bounded by Mahnomen County, to the south by Clay County, and to the north by Polk County. The western boundary is formed by the Red River of the North and North Dakota. The county is made up of twenty-four townships. Check out the map of the county as it looked in 1895.Norman County Court House
The county seat is located in Ada, which is situated near the center of the county. Other towns and communities presently in Norman County include: Hendrum, Halstad, Twin Valley, Gary, Borup, Perley, Flom and Shelly. The county borders North Dakota on the west and is surrounded to the north by Polk county, to the east by Mahnomen county, and to the south by Clay county.

The goal of this website is to be of assistance to those people seeking information regarding people who lived in Norman County. This goal can only be accomplished with the help of fellow genealogists who share information that will be helpful to others as they search for their Norman roots.

 Please contact the County Coordinator if you have information to share.
