Chippewa County was established on February 20th, 1862, and organized four years later, from a portion of Renville County. Upon creation, Montevideo was appointed as the county seat, as it is today. In 1870, the northern most portion of the county was annexed to form Swift County, and at that time the present-day boundaries were officially set. Chippewa County is, and has always been, a primarily agricultural area. Today, many of the cities boast other industries including retail and manufacturing, and as a whole the county is home to just over 12,000 residents.
