In 1871, the Edgerton Land Company, owned by prominent Platte County resident James Nelson Bourne, filed a plat for a town and named it for Chicago railroad attorney Henry Edgerton.

In 1971, the first Edgerton Pioneer Days Festival was held to commemorate the town’s Centennial.

A special Sesquicentennial celebration is being planned for the Pioneer Days Festival weekend in September 2021 (annually the second full weekend in September).

If you would like to be involved in the planning of this special event, please contact edgerton150years@gmail.com.
