The county was founded in 1836, then a part of the Wisconsin Territory. It is named for its principal town, Racine, which was laid off in 1834-35 by Gilbert Knapp. The first designation of this settlement was Port Gilbert; but its founder decided to change this to Racine, the French translation of Root River, on which he had laid out his town.
