The land of Ozaukee County was originally part of Milwaukee county which encompassed the entire southeast section of Wisconsin. In 1830, the first WI territorial legislature created Washington County from Milwaukee County. And on March 7 1853, the legislature created Ozaukee County from a section of Washington County because of a dispute regarding the County Seat. Ozaukee County is named for the Chippewa word for the Sauk Nation, which translates as "yellow earth." Located in southeast Wisconsin, the county seat is Port Washington.
