Van Dyne is an unincorporated census-designated place in the town of Friendship, in Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin, United States.[3][4] At the 2010 census, its population is 279.[1] The road traveling north-south through the community was part of the Yellowstone Trail and later Wisconsin Highway 175; it is now a county highway.


The community was first platted by Daniel Van Duyne in 1866, and was a stop for a railroad between Fond du Lac and Oshkosh.[5][6] A post office has been operating in Van Dyne since 1866.[7]
