Strasburg was laid out in 1902 when a spur of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul Railroad was extended to that point. The city was named after Straßburg, Ukraine, a town founded by 18th century German immigrants in South Russia and now (with all the Germans expelled) renamed Kuchurhan, Rozdilna Raion. Strassburg was, in turn, named for the historic German city of Strassburg in Alsace, France. A post office has been in operation at Strasburg since 1903.
Historic sites in or near Strasburg include Tirsbol Cemetery, Wrought-Iron Cross Site, Wrought-iron cross sites of Holy Trinity Cemetery (Strasburg, North Dakota), and Ludwig and Christina Welk Homestead.
