Dawson county is located in the far eastern part of the state. It is only about 15-20 miles from the western border of North Dakota. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the total area of the county is 2,383 square miles (6,171.9 km2) and only 10 miles of that is water. With an estimated population of 9,249 people in the 2012 U.S. Census, there are only 3 people for every square mile of Dawson county! That is some serious peace and quiet!
Over the years parts of Dawson county have been lost to other neighboring counties, Valley County in 1893, Richland County and a part of Wibaux County in 1914, a part of Prairie County is 1915 and Garfield and part of McCone county in 1919.
