The community is located between New London and Paynesville along State Highway 23 (MN 23) at the junction with Kandiyohi County Road 2. Hawick is located 41 miles west-southwest of the city of Saint Cloud.
Hawick was originally settled by immigrants from Norway during the mid-19th Century through the early 20th Century.
Conversely, according to Minnesota historian Warren Upham in the book "Minnesota Place Names: a Geographical Encyclopedia" (1920), the name Hawick is believed to have come from local railroad superintendent R. Manvel, who named the community after Hawick, Scotland.
