|Hi, my name is Sara Cross and I am the County Coordinator for Dawson county. If you have any questions please feel free to email me email@example.com and I'll be more than happy to try and help. I would like to mention that I don't live in Dawson county so I'm not able to do research. Sorry for the inconvenience.
|Dawson County was created in January 15, 1869 from the northern half of the original Big Horn County.
The name comes from Major Andrew Dawson, manager of the Fort Benton Trading Post for the American Fur Company from 1856 to 1864.
The legislature chose Fort Peck as the county seat but attached the county to Chouteau County for legislative representation.
Over the years, Dawson County lost territory, which formed all of the counties now in northeastern Montana. Glendive, an important
station along the Northern Pacific Railway, is the modern county seat and largest town in Dawson county.
