Milbank was established in 1880 when the Chicago. Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway came to the area and was named after railroad director Jeremiah Milbank. Milbank is the county seat of Grant County. Grant County was founded in 1873 and was named after president Ulysses S. Grant. The Grant County Courthouse was built in 1915 using the Classical Revival style of architecture and was designed by Charles E. Bell who also designed the South Dakota Capitol Building. The courthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
