Dakota County seat is Hastings
Hastings is proud to be the county seat for Dakota County. It is a designation that wasn't easy for the city to earn or hold on to, as it had a bitter dispute with the City of Farmington to earn the right. Hastings has been the county seat since 1857.
The county now employs more than 2,000 people in the area, and the main county government center is located in Hastings.
