Pottawatomie County is located in the great state of Kansas and was officially established on February 20, 1857. The county gets its name from the Potawatomi Native American tribe, who inhabited the area prior to European settlement in the early 1800s. This rich history has earned the county a reputation for being one of the most diverse and culturally unique places in Kansas.

The county was originally settled by European pioneers in the mid-1800s, with the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 attracting many settlers looking for free land. Early communities consisted mostly of farmers and merchants, who came seeking opportunities in the fertile lands along the Kansas and Big Blue rivers.

During the Bleeding Kansas era in the 1850s, Pottawatomie County became a battleground between pro-slavery and anti-slavery factions. This led to several violent events, such as the Pottawatomie massacre, where a group led by abolitionist John Brown killed five pro-slavery settlers in May 1856.

Since then, Pottawatomie County has evolved, with the development of industries and towns taking place in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Agriculture continues to be a focal point for the county's economy, with major crops including wheat, corn, and soybeans, while the rise of manufacturing and retail industries further support the region's growth.

A fun fact about Pottawatomie County is that it is home to the historic Rock Island Depot in the city of Westmoreland. This depot, built in 1903, was once part of the Rock Island Railroad system and now serves as a museum showcasing the history and stories of early railroad travel in the area. The depot has been beautifully preserved and is a popular attraction in the county that offers visitors a glimpse into the past.
