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.
