Surrey is a city in Ward County, North Dakota, United States. The population was 934 at the 2010 census.[5] Official incorporation of Surrey occurred in 1951. The city is part of the Minot Micropolitan Statistical Area.

History[edit]

Surrey was founded on June 18, 1900, and named after Surrey, England, by Great Northern Railway officials.[6] It was one of several sites along the Great Northern's transcontinental route between Devils Lake and Minot that were named after places in England (the others were Berwick, Leeds, Norwich, Penn, Rugby, Tunbridge, and York).

In 1910, Surrey gained notoriety as being the point where construction began on a shortening of the Great Northern transcontinental route. This construction progressed eastward and was completed in 1912.[7] The new line, which proceeded diagonally from Fargo to Surrey and reduced the distance required to travel between those two cities by 44 miles (71 km),[8] came to be popularly known as the Surrey Cutoff.[6] Both the cutoff and the original line are still in place today, with the cutoff forming a part of the BNSF Railway's northernmost transcontinental route.
