 Brief History:

 French-Canadian fur trappers of the Hudson's Bay Company gave the name Riviere des Chutes
 (River of the Falls) to the Deschutes River, from which the county derived its name.

 On December 13, 1916, Deschutes County was created from the southern part of Crook County.
 Bend has been the county seat since the county's formation. It was the last county in Oregon to be
 established.
