Made out of Buffalo, in 1854. Its name is derived from the French name of a small hill in the Mississippi River. It is watered by the Trempeleau River and its branches, the Mississippi and Black Rivers passing along its bounds. It contains about twenty townships, most of which is of excellent quality for agricultural purposes. Already settlements have been made in the southern part, and fine tracts of Government land now remain unoccupied, which hold out inducements to immigrants seeking a home.

Monteville is a little village, at an excellent landing on the Mississippi. Galesville is the County Seat.

Trempeleau is in the La Crosse land district.
