Come on down to Mexico, I have
a couple Counties there!!
In February 1864, the territory of Idaho was divided
into Shoshone, Nez Perce, Idaho, Boise, Owyhee, Alturas
and Oneida Counties, the last of which included the
present county of Bannock. Soda Springs was the first
county seat, which was afterward moved to Malad City.
Bingham county was created January 13, 1885, out of the
northern and eastern parts of Oneida county, the
southern part of which was made into Bannock County,
March 6, 1893. This county was named after the Bannock
Indians, who were its original inhabitants, and who
still own many acres within the county limits. Read more
