HISTORY
Founded on November 19, 1912,
Golden Valley County was formerly part
of Billings County.  Voters elected to
disjoin from Billings County in 1910, but
litigation hampered official organization
of the county until 1912.  The terrain was
labeled Golden Valley in 1902 after a
group of land surveyors observed that
the sunlight gave the encompassing
grasses a lucid golden glow.
