Organized in 1853
Named after Franklin Pierce
The county seat is Ellsworth

Largest city is River Falls, which is also partly in St. Croix county.
The city's first settlers were Joel Foster and his indentured servant, Dick, in the year 1848. The original village was started as the village of Kinnickinnic in 1854 by brothers Nathaniel N. and Oliver S. Powell who were from St. Lawrence County, New York. At the time, the town and village were also known as "Greenwood" but this was changed, as another Greenwood, Wisconsin already existed.
