Mille Lacs County, located in the great state of Minnesota, has a rich and fascinating history. The name "Mille Lacs" can be translated as "Thousand Lakes," which is fitting for a region known for its natural beauty and abundance of water resources. The county was formally established on May 23, 1857, derived from the eastern part of Ramsey County and originally called Monroe County until it was changed to Mille Lacs on June 4, 1857.

Before European settlement, the county was inhabited by various Native American tribes, primarily the Ojibwe (also known as Chippewa) and the Dakota (or Sioux). The area was abundant in wild rice, fish, and game, which attracted the indigenous people to the region for centuries. The county is home to the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, a federally recognized tribe today.

Throughout the 19th century, European settlers arrived in the area, and agriculture became the primary industry and means of sustenance. The county saw rapid development, including the construction of railroads and the establishment of several townships. These townships included Princeton, Milaca, and Onamia, which became vital communities in the region.

Forestry and logging were also essential industries in Mille Lacs County. The proximity to the Rum River enabled the easy transportation of logs to mills downstream. Additionally, dairy farming and livestock raising grew in importance over time.

A fun fact about Mille Lacs County is that it is home to the Mille Lacs Indian Museum and Trading Post. This museum provides an in-depth view of the history, culture, and traditions of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe. Visitors can explore interactive exhibits, traditional artifacts, and even participate in workshops to learn about traditional Ojibwe crafts and skills.
