Jerome
Pop. 7,780

When sagebrush still ruled the land in 1907, this small town was platted by Jerome Kuhn (of Pittsburgh), I.B. Perrine, and S.B. Milner. These three men were influential in establishing the North Side Twin Falls Canal Project and subsequently created this community in 1908. It was incorporated in 1909 and later became the county seat (1919). Some residents and historians claim the town was named for Jerome Hill, grandfather of Jerome Kuhn. Regardless, this small town serves the surrounding farmers who raise sugar beets, beans, hay, wheat, and potatoes.
