The state of Minnesota is home to 87 counties. Besides, it is also noted for having various historical counties. On 27 October 1849, a total of nine counties were introduced to the state, namely Dahkotah, Benton, Ramsey, Itasca, Pembina, Mahkahta, Washington, Wabasha, and Wahnata. Among these, Itasca, Ramsey, Benton, Dakota, Wabasha, and Washington retain their initial names. However, the county of Pembina lost its existence with the introduction of the Kittson County on 9 March 1878.

When Minnesota was declared as a state, there existed only fifty seven counties. In 1923, the Lake of the Woods County was the last to be added to this state. Most of the counties derive their names from the ancient history of exploration. More than ten counties derive their names from the different Native American associations of the state while fifteen counties got their names from the geographical features of Minnesota. The remaining counties got their names from the politicians of this state.

Some of the prominent counties of Minnesota are as follows:

Benton County: One of the initial nine counties introduced in 1849 by the territorial legislature, the Benton County recorded an approximate population of 38,351 as the 2010 census records. When formed, the county was about forty miles in width and hundred miles in length. However, between 1856 and 1860 it was cut short to its current size.

Its county seat lies in Foley. Benton got its name from Thomas Hart Benton; a renowned senator of Missouri, who actively participated to introduce the Homestead Act. The major attractions of this county are Sports Arena East, Sauk Rapids; Municipal Athletic Complex, St. Cloud; National Hockey Center, St. Cloud; Whitney Senior Center, St. Cloud; Paramount Theatre and Arts District, St. Cloud; Munsinger/Clemens Gardens, St. Cloud.

The county is home to more than 400 lakes that lure boaters, anglers as well as others who are in love with lakes. The population of lake lovers triples during the summer months.
