County History

Created in 1853, Nicollet County was claimed on the shores of the Minnesota, then St. Peter, River. The first major settlement – St. Peter – was chosen as the county seat. This settlement was also intended to be the state capitol, but because the bill that named St. Peter as capitol was stolen, St. Paul earned the designation. Today, Nicollet County is home to thriving businesses, fantastic natural resources, and a population of just fewer than 35,000 residents.
