Welcome to
Bannock County, Idaho!

"Bannock County was named for the local Indian tribe which ranged the area before white men came. The Portneuf River and its canyon were traversed by trappers. Part of Bannock County is in the Fort Hall Indian reservation. The original Fort Hall, established in 1834, was a way station on the Oregon Trail. Railroading contributed most to the early growth of Pocatello, now the state's second largest city. The city became a division point on the Oregon Short Line Railraod and shopes and yards for diversion of freight cars were established over the years. Hundreds of Bannock County residents work in phosphate processing plants located in Power County (to the west). Pocatello is the site of Idaho State University and numereous small and medium sized businesses." - The Idaho Almanac, 1977 Edition, State of Idaho.
