A Little Bit of History
Idaho County was originally founded as a region of the Washington Territory in 1861, named for a steamer called Idaho that
was launched on the Columbia River in 1860 and served miners during the
gold rush in north Idaho. It was reorganized by the Idaho Territorial
Legislature on February 4, 1864. In this context, the name of the
county predates both the Idaho Territory and the State of Idaho. The present county seat is
Grangeville. Previous county seats were Florence (1864-1875) and Mount
Idaho (1875-1902). At just over 8,500 square miles, Idaho County is the
state's largest county by area.
