History:  

NIELSVILLE, a city in sections 19, 20, 29, and 30 of Hubbard, incorporated as a village on May 7, 1920, was named for Nels C. Paulsrud, who first settled in the area in 1872 about one and a half miles northwest of the present site. Paulsrud came from Norway in 1869, his name originally being Nils Olson; he provided mail service at his home, which was called Old Nielsville after the post office of Nielsville began at the present location in 1883. The village had a station of the Great Northern Railway.
