It was established in the early nineteenth century around the tavern and ferry of Solomon Brandenburg. The Brandenburg post office opened in 1826.  The county is named for James Meade, honored after the Battle of River Raisin.  In 1974 the town was near totally destroyed by a tornado.  The county population in 1990 was 24,170.
