The City of Surrey


Surrey is located just 7 miles east of Minot off of Highway 2 in Ward County. North Dakota.  It was founded on June 18, 1900, and named after Surrey, England by Great North Railway officials.  The name derives from its definition meaning a light four-wheeled horse-drawn carriage; has two or four seats, with wheels drawn by one or more horses.  A town built upon the rail. 


Official incorporation of the City occurred in 1951.  Since then, has grown and continues to grow.  The population was 1357 as of the 2020 Census closing in on that count of 1500 people and part of the Minot Micropolitan Statistical area.   


 With that it’s still quiet and proud to have that “ND Small Town” feel.  Surrey not only offers convenience of being located just minutes away from a larger City but also has affordable housing, a K-12 Public School, Gas Station/Convenience Store, Senior Activity Center, Post Office, Food Establishments, a ball complex, walking paths, camping spots, and beautiful parks for our children to play.
