Welcome to Elmore County

Elmore County was established February 7, 1889, with its county seat at Rocky Bar. It is named after the Ida Elmore mines, the area’s greatest silver and gold producer of the 1860s, located near Silver City in Owyhee County.

A station on the overland stage route, originally named Rattlesnake, was moved west to the railroad line and became Mountain Home. On February 4, 1891, the county seat was moved to Mountain Home.

COUNTY SERVICES UPDATES & INFO **NEW 2-8-21**

Due to the Governor’s order moving the State into Stage 3, all County offices have re-opened doors to walk-ins.  Please keep in mind some offices will still have restrictions to how many individuals may be in the area at one time.  Feel free to contact the office in advance to address specific concerns.  Elmore County requests that you continue to be cognizant of in person interactions and distance to lessen the impact to our employees and the continuation of services.
