Cassia County History
Cassia County was established February 20, 1879 with
its county seat at Albion. The county boundaries were later reduced
1913 by the creation of Twin Falls and Power counties. The county seat
was changed to Burley on November 5, 1918.
Named for Cassia Creek,
which was named for one of two words: cajeaux, peasant French for raft;
John Cazier, member of the LDS Church and of the Mormon
Battalion, later a colorful captain of an
emigrant train, whose name
was corrupted to cassia. Locally it is also believed that
the name is
derived from the name of a plant.
