Greeley County was formed in 1871 from unorganized land. The county seat is Greeley.

Greeley county was named in honor of Horace Greeley (1811-1872) to whom is accredited the saying: "Go west young man and grow up with the country." The first settlements in this county were made in 1871-1872. It was organized and the boundaries defined by an act approved March 1, 1871.
