Donnelly was incorporated as a city on December 15, 1960, too late to appear on the 1960 U.S. Census. It appeared once on the 1970 census with just seven residents.[4] On March 7, 1974, it was dissolved as an inactive city (i.e. due to very low population).[5] It has not appeared on the census since.
