Abstract: The Newburgh School District No. 1 Records document the development of a rural school district in northeast Steele County, N.D., located directly west of Hatton, N.D.

Provenance: The State Historical Society of North Dakota obtained the Newburgh School District No. 1 Records from John E. Bye in 2016. The records were kept with Olaf Midboe, Newburgh Township resident when given to John Bye in the late 1970s. The board minutes and teacher registers were later placed at the Hatton Eielson Museum and Historical Society. John Bye prepared the inventory to the Newburgh School District No. 1 Records prior to turning them over to the State Historical Society of North Dakota Archives.

The Newburgh School District No. 17 was organized on June 21, 1879 at a meeting in the township which was at that time a part of Traill County, N.D. It encompassed all of Newburgh Township except the bottom tier of sections that belonged to school district no. 8.

With the successful vote to establish Steele County in June 1883, the two tiers of townships on the western edge of Traill County joined with the two tiers of townships on the eastern edge of Griggs County to form the new county. In the newly established county the Newburgh School District became No. 1.
