Shoshone County

Organized in 1864. Bounded on the north by Kootenai County, south by Nez Perce County, east by Montana Territory, west by Kootenai and Nez Perce Counties. Area, 3,000 square miles. Assessed valuation of property for 1874, $49,260. County seat, Pierce City. Oro Fino at one time existed as a thriving mining town but has ceased to present claims to importance. The resources of the county remain undeveloped, being at present limited to the gold placer diggings existing on the Oro Fino and Rhodes Creeks. The surface of the county is generally mountainous; and. as but very small tracts of fertile land exist along the river bottoms, in an agricultural sense it is valueless. It contains an abundance of good timber for manufacturing purposes.
