Welcome to Allamakee
Welcome to the Allamakee County Courthouse website. Here you will find information and resources available for Allamakee county residents and visitors.
Allamakee County was formed on February 20, 1847. The derivation of the name is debated, some believing it was the name of an Indian chief, others think it was named for Allen Magee, an early historic trader. The first Allamakee County Courthouse, built in 1861, now serves as the Allamakee County Historical Museum.
