Hirschville is an unincorporated community in Dunn County, North Dakota, United States.[1]

On December 12, 1910, Casper and Marianna Hirsch donated 6 acres (24,000 m2) of land for 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 (1865–1931).[2]
