Emmet was a small rural community in McLean County, North Dakota, United States. It is about twelve miles west of Garrison. There is no longer anything at the location, although it may still be marked on some maps. Emmet was in existence until at least 1966.
- James Kerzman, North Dakota state legislator, rancher, and farmer, lived on a farm near Emmet. Kerzman's parents were killed when the ambulance taking his mother to hospital with a newborn daughter was involved in a collision in 1965. The fifteen Kerzman children (including the daughter Mayruth from the ambulance crash) were brought up by relatives near Emmet. Kerzman's uncle, Francis Kerzman, built an extension to his house there to accommodate them all.
