|Nez Perce County was established February 4, 1864 by the Idaho Territorial
Legislature with its county seat at Lewiston. Named for the Nez
Perce Indians who occupied the area before the white man.
Previously established by the Territorial Legislature of
Washington in 1861. This was one of the four original Idaho
counties in 1863 from which all 44 have been carved. The present
boundaries of Nez Perce County were set in 1911. Lewis and Clark
were the first white men in the area in 1805. Lewiston served as
the territorial capital for twenty-two months before the capital
was moved to Boise.
