2. History of Todd County. In 1871, John P. Tweed, a trustee of the Long Prairie Land Company, gave a full block to Todd County. The consideration for this transfer stated “that the same shall be used for permanent County buildings”. The Todd County Courthouse was built in 1883 and the first jail was built in 1900 and was used until 1985. (Submitted on July 30, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
