Dakota County is 593 square miles in area
and has a population of approximately 400,000. Situated in the
southeast corner of the Twin Cities Metropolitan area, it is the
third most populous county in the state of Minnesota. Dakota County
maintains a land use mixture of 1/3 urban, 1/3 suburban, and 1/3
rural. This combination of land use and the confluence of two major
rivers (the Mississippi and Minnesota) that form the county's
northern and eastern borders makes Dakota County a unique geographic

Founded in 1849, Dakota County
was one of the original nine counties created by the Minnesota
Territory Legislature. Thus, it was established before Minnesota was
considered a state. The County seat moved to Hastings in 1857, where
it has remained.
Between 1990 and
2000, Dakota County's population grew by nearly 30%. This growth
continues, with another five percent increase expected by the end of
the decade. In recent years, second and third ring communities in
Dakota County (Burnsville, Eagan, Inver Grove Heights, Apple Valley,
Farmington, Lakeville, and Rosemount) have dramatically increased in
population, as development continues to move outwards from the urban
core of Minneapolis and St. Paul, into suburban municipalities.
