History

Dazey was founded in 1883 and named for Charles Turner Dazey, who moved there from Illinois to run a bonanza farm in the early 1880s. Mr. Dazey donated the land to start the townsite. Mr. Dazey later moved back to Illinois where he became a successful playwright.[4] It was incorporated as a village in 1904, and reached a peak population of 293 in 1920.[5] It became a city in 1967, after the North Dakota Legislature enacted legislation that eliminated all existing incorporation titles for towns and villages in the state.[6]
