County History

Sibley County’s early history is one shrouded in mystery, as the official historical documents were destroyed in a fire in October of 1863. The County was established in March of 1853, and named after General Henry Hastings Sibley – the military defender and governor of Minnesota. Though much information about the beginnings of the County was lost, Sibley County began as an agricultural area, which can still be seen today. Currently, the County is home to just over 15,000 residents.
