Washabaugh County is a former county in South Dakota. The county was named after Frank Washabaugh, a prominent South Dakota politician. [cite book|last= Gannett|first= Henry|title= The Origin of Certain Place Names in the United States|date = 1905|edition= Second Edition|publisher= Government Printing Office|location= Washington, D.C.|pages= 316] [Google books|9V1IAAAAMAAJ|Place Names in the United States]


First established in 1883 as a county in Dakota Territory from a part of Lugenbeel County, it became a county in the new state of South Dakota in 1889.cite web |url=http://historical-county.newberry.org/Website/South_Dakota/documents/DAKs_Individual_County_Chronologies.htm |title= Dakota Territory, South Dakota, and North Dakota: Individual County Chronologies |accessdate=2008-07-18 |work= Dakota Territory Atlas of Historical County Boundaries |author = John H. Long, Editor |publisher= Newberry Library |date= 2006 ] Washabaugh remained an unorganized county, attached to various other counties for judicial purposes, until it merged with Jackson County in 1983.


The county encompased the northeast corner of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation including the community of Wanblee. The eastern portion of the county was within the the Rosebud Indian Reservation until 1911, when that part was annexed into the newly created Mellette County.cite book | last= United States Census Bureau |url=http://www2.census.gov/prod2/decennial/documents/06229686v38-43ch3.pdf |title= Fourteenth Census of the United States. State Compendium, South Dakota. |authorlink = United States Census Bureau |publisher= Government Printing Office |date= 1921 |pages=12, 25] By 1914, Washabaugh County's boundaries were expanded to include a portion of Washington County to the west and all of Jackson County south of the White River. [ [http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~shastaca/maps/SD/Ben-Haa-Jac-Mel-Tod-Wasa.html 1914 Map of Washabaugh County] ]


As an unorganized county lying entirely within two American Indian reservations, Washabaugh did not report separate population totals during the 1890, 1900, and 1910 censuses. Instead, population was included in the total population counts for the Pine Ridge and Rosebud reservations.cite book |last= United States Census Bureau |url=http://www2.census.gov/prod2/decennial/documents/36894832v3ch5.pdf |title= THIRTEENTH CENSUS OF THE UNITED STATES. | volume = Volume 3, Population |authorlink = United States Census Bureau |publisher= Government Printing Office |date= 1913 |pages=689] The county started reporting separate population counts with the 1920 Census.
