Bingham County


Bingham County was created January 13, 1885, and named after Henry H. Bingham, a congressman from Pennsylvania and friend of William Bunn, Idaho's Territorial Governor. As a young officer in the Civil War, Bingham rose from lieutenant to brigadier general; he was
awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions at the Battle of the Wilderness. Fremont County was carved out of Bingham
in 1893, Bonneville in 1911, Power in 1913, and Butte in 1917. Blackfoot is the county seat.
