Historyedit

Cavalier County was created from the western part of Pembina County, North Dakota in 1873 and named by the Territorial Legislature for Charles Turner Cavileer 1818–1902, a well known fur trader, customs agent and postmaster5 There is no explanation for the difference in the spelling of "Cavalier," though one placename historian suspects it was an attempt to Gallicize, or make the name appear French6

After petitioning the Territorial Governor for permission to organize the county, Patrick McHugh, W Hudson Matthews, and LC Noracong met for the purpose on July 8, 1884 On July 26 the new county officials met for the second time and chose Noracong as Chairman of the Board with William H Doyle and Matthews as Commissioners The first Register of Deeds and County Clerk was McHugh WJ Mooney became the first Judge of Probate, Charles B Nelson was the first Cavalier County Supt of Schools, and Clarence Hawkes the first Sheriffcitation needed Cavalier took its current form in 1887 after the Territorial Legislature authorized an increase in size by taking a portion from Pembina County The expansion added 15 new townships to the county3

The site of the new county seat was chosen at this meeting and named Langdon after Robert Bruce Langdon of Minnesota and official with the Great Northern Railroad Langdon never visited the town, but reportedly donated a bell for the local school7

The first court house was built in the fall of 1884 at a cost of $36000 It was used briefly and then abandoned for warmer and more centrally located quarters in a downtown bank A large brick court house was built in 1895 on the present site at a contract cost of $9,09900 This building served county officials until the current court house was constructed in 1957-58 8
