Blaine County was created by the state legislature on March 5, 1895, by combining Alturas and Logan counties. Its present boundaries were set on February 8, 1917, when a western portion became Camas County.

The county is named after former congressman and 1884 Republican presidential nominee James G. Blaine (1830–93).[1] Born in Pennsylvania and a resident of Maine, Blaine had served as Secretary of State, U.S. Senator, and Speaker of the House.
