Nash is a census-designated place in Walsh County in the U.S. State of North Dakota. The unincorporated community is located in Farmington Township, northwest of Grafton, North Dakota. It was founded in 1890 as a station along the Great Northern Railroad and named for the Nash brothers, pioneer settlers in the area who operated a fruit store in Grafton and started what is now the Nash Finch Company, the third-largest food wholesaler in the United States.[3][4]

Nash was designated as part of the U.S. Census Bureau's Participant Statistical Areas Program on March 31, 2010.[5] It was not counted separately during the 2000 Census,[6] but was included in the 2010 Census,[7] where a population of 32 was reported.[2]
