Welcome to Pend Oreille County

Welcome to Pend Oreille County, where you will find a unique blend of pioneer spirit, visitor amenities, and small town hospitality. We are situated in the northeast corner of Washington State where we share borders with Idaho and Canada and serve as a gateway to some of the Pacific Northwest’s most enchanting landscapes and finest wilderness and outdoor recreation areas. Whether your passion is hunting, game fishing, wildlife viewing, golf, winter sports or water sports, you will find much offered here. It is also a place rich in culture and history, the name itself derived from an early French trapper’s description of the ear pendants worn by one of the local Indian tribes. Historical museums and places of interest abound.

Pend Oreille County is blessed not only with rare scenic beauty but with vast natural resources that early on allowed the timber and mining industries to thrive and they remain today among the region’s largest employers. Abundant and inexpensive hydro-electric power and the attraction of rural living have also begun to draw manufacturing to the region.

As its stewards, the employees of the County strive to provide its citizens, visitors and potential new businesses with friendly, courteous and professional service that helps to create what we believe is a special place to live.
