In January 1863, Stevens County was created from the Columbia River to the summit of the Cascade Mountains north of the Wenatchee River, but it never organized.

In November 1871, Whitman County was created and it included current Adams, Franklin, and Whitman counties. Stevens County then encompassed the current north half of Chelan, Douglas, Ferry, Grant, Lincoln, Okanogan, Pend Oreille, Spokane, and Stevens. In October 1879, Spokane County was re-created. Stevens County then consisted of the current north half of Chelan, Ferry, Okanogan, Pend Oreille, and Stevens counties. In late 1883, the Stevens County Courthouse moved three miles from Pinkney City, previously renamed Colville by the Washington State Legislature, to the current City of Colville.
