The first American settlement in the area now known as Scott County was Valley City (now known as Pleasant Valley) in 1833. Other early towns included Davenport (now the county seat and largest city) and Rockingham (which ceased to exist in 1847). The area was fully surveyed in 1837, and the county was established by the Wisconsin legislature in that same year. Scott County is named for General Winfield Scott, who was the presiding officer at the signing of the peace treaty ending the Black Hawk War.
