Welcome to Buffalo County's official government website. Buffalo County is located within the Drift less Area of Western Wisconsin, and was founded in 1853. Buffalo County is named after the Buffalo River, which was named in 1680 by Father Hennepin. French voyagers called the river "Riviere des Boeufs," meaning beef or Buffalo. The 42nd largest County in the State, its boundaries on the south, west , and east are formed by the Mississippi River, and in part, by the Chippewa and Trempealeau Rivers.

Buffalo County will astound you with scenery unsurpassed by any other County in Wisconsin. Buffalo County offers beautiful valleys of unsurpassed fertility, bordered by towering bluffs on all sides, which in the summer when covered in foliage, offer a view of scenery rarely equaled. Not to mention the abundance of beautiful color in the fall when the leaves turn yellow, orange, and red.
