http://www.cassiacounty.org/

Established February 20, 1879 with its county seat at Albion. The county boundaries were later reduced in 1913 by
the creation of Twin Falls and Power counties. The county seat was changed to Burley on November 5, 1918. Named
for Cassia Creek, this was named for one of two words: cajeaux, peasent French for raft; or James John Cazier,
member of the LDS Church and of the Mormon Battalion, later a colorful captain of an emigrant train, whose name
was corrupted to cassia. Locally it is also believed that the name is derived from the name of a plant.
