Hurnville is on Farm Road 1197 eight miles north of Henrietta in north central Clay County. It was founded about 1890 and within a few years was populated predominantly by recently arrived Russians of German descent. A post office served the community from 1891 until 1905, and the immigrant settlers established a German Baptist church in 1894. In 1936 Hurnville had a population of twenty and two businesses. The population stayed the same, but by the mid-1960s no businesses operated locally. The population in 1990 was fifteen. That figure remained unchanged in 2000.
