History[edit | edit source]
- In the beginning the area of the Lower Valley of the Chubut River was considered a single department, but in 1885 the national government divided it into the "Department of the Capital" and the "Department of the South". In 1887, they were called the departments of Rawson and Gaiman.
- In 1894 the department was subdivided into two districts (Rawson and Trelew) and declared it the first capital of the territory and head of the department.
- The department of Rawson has a population of approximately 131,000 people.
