Until 1910, Ward County included what is now Burke, Mountrail, and Renville counties; this landmass often being referred to as 'Imperial Ward' County. When Burke and Renville counties were partitioned out of Imperial Ward County, neither group wanted to include Kenmare and which resulted in that town remaining part of present-day Ward County at the end of a narrow strip of land.
