History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Kandiyohi County is named after a Dakota word meaning "where the buffalo fish come." Kandiyohi County was organized in 1858 with its county seat in Kandiyohi, which was then called Kandiyohi Station and was just a railroad stop. The original county occupied only the southern half of its current area. Development was slow, and in 1870 the state legislature called for Monongalia County to merge with Kandiyohi and make one larger county. It took until November 21, 1871 to agree on the centrally located Willmar as the county seat.
