A family friendly farming community in Southwestern North DakotaContact City Hall
Mott is located on the scenic plains of rural southwestern, North Dakota in Hettinger County. Our current population is about 850. We are a Centennial City and celebrated this milestone in 2003.
We are proud of the rich history in Mott and how it has thrived over the years. You can experience it for yourself by visiting the Mott Gallery of History and Art (open in the summer). We strive to keep our town growing and welcome new opportunities as they arise because we love our community.

We also have a senior citizen center where they serve senior meals at noon in a homelike family setting. It is a great time to gather with friends. Folks can play cards there or at the K of C Hall, and several card clubs meet in private homes if you enjoy visiting over a card game. For more information call 701-824-2072.
Are you a sportsman? We are considered the "Pheasant Hunting Capital of The Nation" Pheasant hunting in Mott, North Dakota." We also have lots of deer, antelope, grouse and turkeys. There is good fishing in the Cannon Ball river that runs through town and many well-stocked dams and ponds are close by. If you like big water, the Missouri River and lake Sakakawea is about one hundred miles from Mott.Local Hunting
Medical assistance is important to a retired person. We have a clinic in town with a doctor nearly every work day and a fine ambulance service. It is merely thirty minutes from the nearest hospital and only an hour and a half to a major medical center. Medivac planes and helicopters cut that response time to next-to-nothing.Medical Services

Our small town is in Southwest North Dakota where State Highway 8 and 21 meet. They call this area of North Dakota "The Banana Belt" because our weather is warmer and drier than the rest of the state. It is a town of about 850 people in farming and ranching country with good country values and an excellent work ethic.
This is a wonderful place to retire, filled with as much peace and quiet as can be found anywhere. If you are fed up with bumper-to-bumper traffic, high crime rate, noise, air pollution, fires, terrorism and whatever else that comes with a large city, then the town of Mott is for you. Yes, we have plenty of peace and quiet, wonderful clean air and security.Local Golfing
