Canyon County

The county was established on March 7, 1891, with its county seat at Caldwell. Current sources attribute the name to the canyon
of the Boise River near Caldwell. However, both John Rees and Vardis Fisher believed it was named for the Snake River
canyon which forms a natural boundary for the county with Owyhee County. The Hudson's Bay Company established
Fort Boise in 1834 near what is now Parma, but abandoned it in 1855. Emigrants traveled through Canyon County
on the Oregon Trail. The Oregon Short Line Railroad was completed in 1883.
