Morton County History
 Its county seat is Mandan.The county was originally created in 1873 and later organized in 1878. 

The county was named for Oliver Hazard Perry Throck Morton (1823-1877), governor of Indiana during the American Civil War and later a United States Senator.

 It was re-organized on March 23, 1878, but the action of the 1878 legislature in attaching the eastern portion to Burleigh County effectively nullified this action. The county was reorganized on February 18, 1881, after the detached portion had been returned to Morton County by the 1881 legislature. Mandan has always been the county seat, though from 1878 to 1879, Mandan was known as Lincoln. 

On November 23, 1916, 1,666 square miles of southern and southwestern Morton County was detached to form Grant County.
