Emmons County
​ Courthouse

Emmons County was organized in 1883 and has a colorful history. Its early political history had a virtual battle waged between Linton and Williamsport which eventually ended up in Linton.  After moving the county seat to Linton, the Patterson lean-to was used until an official courthouse was built in 1901 and has had 3 different courthouse buildings. The current building was constructed in 1934. 


Today we continue running county government out of the 1934 Courthouse, with County Officials and many employees, along with 5 County Commissioners, managing the County’s responsibility and duties.

Mission Statement:  We are here to serve all citizens of Emmons County with fairness, honesty, and justice to our best ability.
