Perkins County, South Dakota was created in 1908 from Harding and Butte Counties.  It was organized in 1909. 

The county was named for Henry E. Perkins, a native of Vermont, who was a lawyer and State Senator from Sturgis from 1903-1911. Perkins was instrumental in securing the passage of the act that created the county.

The county seat is Bison.
