Custer County, located in the great state of Idaho, was established on January 8, 1881. Named after General George Armstrong Custer, the county covers an area of 4,938 square miles, making it one of the largest counties in Idaho. Custer County is situated in the central part of the state and is bordered by Lemhi, Butte, Blaine, and Boise counties.

The region's history dates back to the Native American tribes, mainly the Shoshone and Bannock peoples, who inhabited the area for thousands of years. As European settlers and fur trappers began exploring the region in the early 19th century, Custer County became an area of interest for its valuable resources, such as gold and other minerals. Mining began to boom in the late 1800s, with towns like Bonanza and Custer being established to support the growing mining industry.

In addition to its rich mining history, Custer County is known for its impressive natural landscape, as it contains parts of the Salmon-Challis National Forest and the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. The county is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, with attractions like the White Clouds Wilderness, the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, and the Lost River Range.

A fun fact about Custer County is that it is home to the highest peak in Idaho, the Borah Peak, standing at an impressive 12,662 feet (3,859 meters) above sea level. The peak was named after William E. Borah, a prominent U.S. Senator from Idaho, and it attracts hikers and mountaineers every year looking to conquer its challenging summit.
