Amidon, North Dakota: Nation's Smallest County Seat

At least it was in 2013, when a billboard announcing this important fact was erected at the entrance to town. Blink and you'll miss it.

Billboard is on the east/north entrance to town, on the north/west side of US Hwy 85.

Smallest County Seat in the U.S.

Town's claim to fame is being the nation's smallest county seat. Not sure if this still holds true, but a 2013 sign declares it so when coming from the north into the town. For sure it's a small town to be a county seat!
