A Proud Heritage - A Promising Future

About Us

Hazen is nestled in the heart of the Sakakawea South Shore Region, just minutes from beautiful Lake Sakakawea, the Knife River Indian Villages NHS and several coal mines and energy plants.  The town of 2500 has most everything the traveler needs including a well-rounded business district, a variety of restaurants, medical facilities and many other services. Hazen is located along Highway 200 midway between two North Dakota state designated Scenic Byways. Hazen was named for A.D. Hazen, who was third assistant postmaster general in the summer of 1884, when application was made for a post office.
