Welcome to Stevens County
is based in Colville, WA, which is located in Stevens County. At one time Stevens County covered most of the northeast part of our state, including what is now Ferry and Pend Oreille counties. It was formed in 1863 from Walla Walla County, with Ferry County breaking away in 1899 and Pend Oreille in 1911. Some early records for those counties are to be found in Stevens county materials, some of which date back to 1861. If you have ancestors or family in the area, please explore our site.
