Keokuk County is located in southeastern Iowa, and was named after the famous Sauk tribe chief, Chief Keokuk. The county was officially established in 1843, with Sigourney selected as the county seat in 1856. It covers an area of approximately 580 square miles and is noted for its rich agricultural history and involvement in the Native American community.
The region was initially inhabited by indigenous tribes, such as the Sauk, Fox, and the Iowa tribes, who lived, hunted, and cultivated the land. As Euro-American settlers moved westward in the early 1800s, treaties were created to define boundaries and coexistence with Native American tribes.
During the early settlement period, the economy was mainly agrarian, with families living in log cabins and focusing on self-sufficiency. The county had the advantage of fertile soil for farming, which attracted many settlers to establish themselves in the area. Over time, Keokuk County saw rapid growth in population and infrastructure, as more people moved to the area to benefit from farms and other agriculture-related businesses.
One fun fact about Keokuk County is that it's home to the Keokuk County Expo, an annual event showcasing local talent, crafts, livestock, and agricultural exhibits. This event highlights the area's rich agricultural history and serves as a means to bring the local community together to celebrate their unique heritage.
