Traverse County history

 Traverse County takes its name from Lake Traverse, located just west of Wheaton, which has been the county seat since 1886. Traverse County was organized in 1862 and in 1870 the Homestead Act opened the territory to European immigrants who successfully farmed Traverse County's rich soil.
