Golden Valley County was established on March 8th, 1920. It was created after the Musselshell County Commissioners petitioned to divide Musselshell County into smaller sections.

The county started as and continues to be a farming and ranching community. Clean air and wide open spaces are abundant here. Landmarks include the Musselshell River, and Big Coulee.

Golden Valley County is rich in history. There have been many small rural communities throughout the county, but they have developed into two main towns, Lavina and Ryegate. Today they are both ripe for growth, and have encouraging business opportunities, including small business loans.

The link below will provide additional information on land costs, tax assessment values, crop and livestock production, wireless and broadband accessibility, and school budget documents in relation to county funding.
