City History

McLeod County was created and organized in early March 1856. Named for Martin McLeod, one of the first settlers in the area, the 503 square-miles were cobbled together, combining several townships previously claimed by Carver and Sibley counties. Located to the west of the Twin Cities, McLeod County is one of the seven counties in Minnesota without any native forests, which made for easy farming of the prairies and savannas in the area, and which continues to this day. Today, McLeod County is a thriving area with a population of approximately 37,000 residents.
