Clearwater County was established on February 27, 1911 with its county
seat at Orofino. Named for the Clearwater River whose name was
translated from the Nez Perce term Koos-Koos-Kai-Kai, describing
clear water. In September, 1805, Lewis and Clark followed an old
Indian trail between the north and middle forks of the Clearwater
River and met the Nez Perce near the present site of Weippe. Gold
discovered by E. D. Perce in 1860 and Pierce City, the
oldest mining town in Idaho came into existence.
