Record, a ranching and wheat-growing community in central Hansford County, was settled by ranchers in the late 1880s and by homesteaders from Illinois and Indiana during the early 1900s. Mail was delivered from nearby Gruver until December 1925, when a post office was established in Record. The office was closed in April 1929, and the community declined. Record did not appear on county maps of the 1930s.
