 County Information

Organized 1893

Its county seat is Bemidji.

Portions of the Leech Lake and Red Lake Indian reservations are in the county.

Beltrami County was named after the Italian count Beltrami, an early explorer of the area. In 1887 Beltrami County was part of one of the state s original nine counties, Becker County. The legislature authorized the creation of Beltrami County in 1893 with 137 townships.

Nineteen townships were given to Roseau County in 1895, reducing Beltrami County to 118 full and 37 fractional townships. On May 17, 1897, Beltrami County was fully organized with Bemidji as the county seat.

In 1902, Clearwater County was created by vote of the residents of Beltrami County. Twenty-eight full and two fractional townships went to the new county.

On January 1, 1923, Lake of the Woods County was created.
