 Brief History from wikipedia:

 Scott County was organized on June 29, 1886, by Mrs. M. E. DeGeer; Mrs. Ida Eastman; Charles S. Reed; Marion
 Cunningham; A. J. Kilpatrick; and Euguene McDaniels. It was named for General Winfield Scott, and contains Scott City.

 The Indian battle at "Battle Canyon" and "Squaw Den," in northern Scott County in 1878 was one of the last Indian raids and
 battles in the state, and the last army officer to be killed by Indians was in this battle.

 The First Methodist Church of Scott City was the first church in the county, and was founded on May 7, 1886. The first
 school district was Scott City, organized April 1, 1886.

 The legend of White Woman Creek tells of a white woman captured by Indians near the creek. The woman was then
 beheaded but never buried.   Her apparation continues to wander up and down the creek searching for her head.
