Knox County NE

When Knox county was first organized in 1857, it was named L’Eau Qui Court (French for Running Water) in honor of the Niobrara River. Later it was renamed for General Henry Knox. Knox county is home to Bloomfield (32 minutes to Yankton), Creighton (55 minutes), Crofton (16 minutes), Niobrara (46 minutes), Santee (51 minutes), Verdigre (61 minutes), and Wausa (35 minutes). Heavily focused on the agricultural industry, Knox county is beautiful with rolling hills, and the Niobrara River. The Lewis & Clark Lake Recreation Area is located on the south side of the Lake. Niobrara State Park surrounds the confluence of the Niobrara and Missouri Rivers.

Public kindergarten through high school education is offered by Bloomfield Community Schools, Creighton Community Public Schools, and Crofton Community Schools.
