History

Hettinger County was named by Tom Hettinger, the great-grandson of Erastus A. Williams, who was Speaker of the Dakota Territory House of Representatives the year Hettinger was established, in honor of his father-in-law Mathias Hettinger.[1] The county was founded by the Dakota Territory Legislature in 1883, and was formally organized with its own county government on April 17, 1907, by a proclamation signed by Governor John Burke.[3]

Annexation by Stark County

In 1891, the North Dakota Legislature approved legislation to annex Hettinger County into neighboring Stark County,[4] but the law was vetoed by Governor Eli C. D. Shortridge.[5][6]
