The history of Mound City
Mound City was part of the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. A treaty was signed with the Sac, Fox and Ioway Indians for Holt County in 1836 with the first permanent white settlers in 1838. Mound City was originally called North Point, and under the latter name was platted in 1857. The present name is after mounds near the original town site. A post office called North Point was established in 1855, and the name was changed to Mound City in 1871.
