Ruthville is a census-designated place and unincorporated community in Ward County, North Dakota, United States. Its population was 191 as of the 2010 census.
Ruthville was named after William Mackenroth's daughter Ruth, in 1936, and consisted of a grocery store and gasoline station. The store was leased and then purchased by Bernhard "Bennie" Schimmelpfennig. His sister Esther ran the store while he was in the Army during World War II. He opened the Jet Motel and Cafe that he named after the new Minot Air Base. He also ran the Ruthville Trailer Park. At one time, Bennie owned everything in Ruthville, except for the Hardy Lieberg Sr. home, Bennie's in-laws. When Bennie bought the store, there was no trees. He planted over 7,000 trees in the area.
