Custer County was
established January 8, 1881 with its county seat at Challis. Named for
the General Custer mine, which was
named in honor of General George
Custer who died at the Battle of Little Bighorn. Its history begins
with fur traders and pathfinders as
early as 1824; later in the 1860s
and 1870s prospectors and miners came. It contains portions of the
Salmon River, White Cloud, Pioneer, Lost River, and White
Knob Mountains and contains the highest peaks in the state.
