This Day in North Idaho History, January 9

1867, Idaho Territorial Legislature extends Kootenai County's souther border to what is now Latah County.

This created an area of 8,300 square miles, as big as Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware and gave county commissioners the authority to locate the county seat.  But it would be 14 years before the county was fully organized.
