Description
Dakota City was established in 1854 on the east fork of the Des Moines River, where town founder Edward McKnight constructed a dam. He named the settlement after the Dakota (Sioux) Indians, who inhabited the region before northern European homesteaders arrived during the last quarter of the 19th century.
