Schrunk Township is a civil township in Burleigh County in the U.S. state of North Dakota. As of the 2000 census, its population was 26,[4] but had increased to an estimated 71 by 2009.[5]

History[edit]

Schrunk Township was first listed as a school township during the 1910 Census, with a population of 120.[6] It was named after brothers Charlie and George Schrunk, early settlers from Iowa who moved to the area in 1893. The first school was built in 1903. A second schoolhouse was constructed in 1908, and operated until 1957 when the school district was consolidated with nearby Wing.[7]

It was later organized as a civil township under the name Summit, and reported a 1920 population of 131.[7][8] By the time of the 1908 Census, the township had been renamed Schrunk.[7][9]
