 Brief History from Kansas State Historical Society:

 Hamilton County was organized on January 29, 1886, by J. H. Luman; Laurence Hardy; Dennis Foley; and Thomas Ford.
 Named for Alexander Hamilton, it contains the cities of Coolidge and Syracuse.

 Both Zebulon Pike, in 1806, and Stephen Longs' (1820) expeditions passed through the county. The county seat wars,
 beginning in 1886, between Syracuse, Kendall and Coolidge saw county government, at one time or another, partially
 located in all three.  The Kansas Supreme Court ruled on November 9, 1888, that Syracuse was the permanent county seat.
