Slope County was formed in 1915. It was originally part of Billings
County. Billings County was divided to form three other counties; Bowman,
Slope, and Golden Valley. You may want to check records in these other

was split off and became the south west corner of North Dakota. Later
Golden Valley and Slope were created out of the remaining Billings County area.
