Pennington County, created in 1875 and organized in 1877, is shaped like a giant tomahawk and covers over a million and a half acres. It was named for John L. Pennington, Governor of Dakota Territory from 1874 to 1878. Governor Pennington named commissioners in 1877 and their first meeting was held at Pactola. The commission later met at Sheridan, which was made the county seat. A vote of the people in November, 1877 made Rapid City the county seat.
