A Little About Beadle County

Beadle County, named in honor of Brig. General William Henry Harrison Beadle, was created by the South Dakota legislature in 1879 and  formally organized in 1880 with the appointment of three county commissioners by Gov. Nehemiah Ordway.  The first town within Beadle County was Cavour, but Huron was named the county seat when the county commissioners first met there in July 1880.
