 Brief History from wikipedia:

 Meade County was organized on November 4, 1885, by Daniel Dillon; John Joslin; A. D. McDaniel; L. S. Sears; H. L.
 Mullen; and E. M. Mears. Named for Civil War General George G. Meade, the county contains the cities of Fowler, Meade
 and Plains.

 The Lone Tree Massacre in which a survey party, sent by the U. S. Government to survey land southwest of Dodge City,
 was attacked and killed by Cheyenne Indians on August 24, 1874. Continued problems with Cheyenne in the area kept
 settlement at a standstill until after 1878. In the late 1870s and early 1880s, the discovery and use of artesian wells in the
 northern part of the county contributed significantly to settlement and growth.
