Long before Morrison County was organized in 1856, the area was the home of the Dacotah and Ojibwe Indians. The Winnebago Indians lived in the area for a brief time, moved in to serve as a buffer between the warring Dacotah and the Ojibwe. As Morrison County became settled by European/American immigrants during the mid-to-late 1800s, approximately twelve distinct nationalities took up residence in the county.

Our immigration map (pdf) shows the general distribution of these nationalities throughout the county.
