Ada County

Ada County was established on December 22, 1864, with its county seat at Boise. The county was named for Ada Riggs, the daughter of H. C. Riggs, one of the founders of Boise and a member of the Idaho Territorial Legislature. Boise became the capital of Idaho in 1865.

Video and Telephone Hearings - March 30

As of Monday, March 30, 2020, in Ada County, all necessary court proceedings will be conducted by video or telephone. If it is not possible to do so, and the matter is deemed an emergency, a hearing may be conducted in the courthouse.
