Divide County was formed from Williams County in 1910. The name Divide results from two factors, that division from Williams County and the fact that Divide County lies on the continental divide between the watersheds that flow into the Gulf of Mexico and those that flow into Hudson Bay. Divide's name may also derive from the fact that it lies on the boundary between the United States and Canada.
