Benton County is located in the central part of Minnesota, USA. Established on October 27, 1849, it was one of the nine original counties in Minnesota Territory. Benton County was named in honor of Thomas Hart Benton, a prominent U.S. Senator from Missouri who played an influential role in the development of the American West.

The county initially spanned a large area, including parts of what are now Morrison, Stearns, Sherburne, Mille Lacs, and Kanabec counties. However, its territory has since been reduced through several boundary changes. The current area of Benton County is about 413 square miles, making it the fifth smallest county in the state.

The city of Sauk Rapids was the first county seat, but it was later changed to Foley in 1901. Over the years, Benton County has developed as an agricultural community with a focus on dairy farming, crop production, and livestock.

An interesting fun fact about Benton County is that it was the birthplace of Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr., the famous American aviator who made the first solo, non-stop transatlantic flight in 1927. Lindbergh was born in Detroit, but his family moved to a farm near Little Falls in Benton County when he was a child, and it was there that his passion for aviation began.
