The Dakota Territory's legislature authorized a Burbank County (named for governor John A. Burbank) in 1872. But in 1874 they renamed it Barnes County in honor of Judge Alanson H. Barnes (1818-1890) who was an associate justice of the Territorial Court. It was finally organized in a meeting at Valley City on January 6, 1879.
The city is known for its many bridges over the Sheyenne River including the Hi-Line Railroad Bridge. These bridges have earned it the distinction of being called the "City of Bridges".  Valley City was founded in 1874 and is the county seat of Barnes County.
The cities of Barnes County are those of Dazey, Fingal, Kathryn, Leal, Litchville, Nome, Oriska, Pillsbury, Rogers, Sandborn, Sibley, Tower City, Valley City, and Wimbledon.
