  Brief History from Kansas State Historical Society:

 Pawnee County was organized on November 4, 1872, by A. H. Boyd; Henry Booth; Timothy McCarthy; and George J. Cox.
 Containing the cities of Garfield, Burdett, Rozel and Larned, the county was named for the Pawnee Indians

 The establishment of Fort Larned in 1859 on the Santa Fe Trail was significant not only for defense of the Trail, but also to
 assist settlers in the area. The Hancock-Custer expedition of 1867 arrived at Fort Larned on April 7, 1867, and the two men
 conducted meetings with two Cheyenne chiefs, Tall Bull, and White Horse in an attempt to satisfy Indian displeasure at white
 settlement in the area. This meeting temporarily halted any problems along the Santa Fe Trail
