History of Imperial County
County was formed from San Diego County in 1907. However, as
early as 1905 the matter of separating the Imperial Valley from
the rest of San Diego County and establishing a new government
was in the mind of the people. To get to the County seat in San
Diego from the Valley required a three hundred mile train trip.
If the County Coroner's services were required he was often too
late to hold a real inquest. The Valley was just the tag end of
official life and the people grew tired of it.
