Hirschville is an unincorporated community in Dunn County, North Dakota, United States.

On December 12, 1910, Casper and Marianna Hirsch donated 6 acres (24,000 m2) of land for a country church – St. Philip's Catholic Church – to hold services for German-speaking immigrants. Shortly after the church was completed, Casper Hirsch established a grocery and hardware store nearby.

On May 11, 1911, a U.S. Post office was annexed to the General Store. The station was called Hirschville in commemoration of its founder, Casper Hirsch.
