City of Noonan

Noonan was founded in 1906 by the Great Northern Railroad in the northeast corner of Divide County and is located at the intersection ND Highways 5 and 40. It was named after a family with farming and mining interests in the area. 

In 1930, Harris M. Baukol, his brothers and L.L. Monson formed Baukol-Noonan Lignite, Inc. and Noonan Holding Company. The companies began mining near Noonan, North Dakota. In 1949, the businesses were assumed by a successor company, Baukol-Noonan, Inc.

Noonan had a peak population of roughly 625 people in 1960 when coal mining activity at the Buakal-Noonan mine was near its peak. 

Contrary to the information in the State Historical Society of North Dakota, Noonan maintained it's high school until 1981 as part of the Divide County School District.
