The county's early history is the story of gold's discovery in the Black Hills. In 1874, General George Custer led an expedition to the Black Hills, investigating rumors of gold ore. Once gold was found, Custer spread the word; the gold rush began despite federal efforts to exclude Whites from Indian territory. The county was created in 1875.
