Welcome to
Power County, Idaho!

Power County was created by an act of the State Legislature in January 1913 and was approved and signed promptly by Governor John M. Haines. It was made up from portions of Bingham, Blaine, Cassia, and Oneida Counties and was attached to the Fifth Judicial District (L.S.I. 1913, ch# 6, p. 30 ) It was given the name Power County because of the hydro-electrical development at the American Falls in the Snake River.
