Cassia County was created in 1879 from the parent County of   Owyhee and a Temporary County seat was approved 20 Feb 1879. On April 7 1879  Marsh Basin was appointed  as temporary County seat. The County was divided into seven precincts: Cassia Creek, Clear Creek, Goose Creek, Marsh Basin, Oakley, Rock Creek and Sublett. On April 14 1879 two more precincts were formed, Salmon Falls and Bonanza Bar. The county seat was Albion until 13 Jan 1919 when it was moved to Burley.
