1849 Minnesota TerritoryOn March 3, 1849, the Minnesota Territory was officially formed. Dakota County was one of nine original counties created at the time.

The history of Dakota County did not begin at this point but was already happening. From the Dakota that lived on this land, to settlers and the fur trade, Dakota County's history goes beyond 1849.
