The County seat is in Payette, Idaho. Payette was originally settled as a railroad camp in the 1860’s and called Boomerang for the log boom on the Payette River. The site, and the community which grew around it, was later named in honor of the area’s first white settler, Francois Payette, a Canadian fur trapper and explorer with the North West Company who arrived in 1818. Payette County is 410 square miles.
