Divide County was formed following a vote at the November 1910 general election to divide Williams County into two counties. This division is the most likely origin of the name, though additional deciding factors may have been 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 and that the county lies on the boundary between the United States and Canada. The county government was first organized on December 9, 1910; Crosby has always been the county seat.

The cities of Divide County are Ambrose, Crosby, Fortuna, and Noonan.  The Unincorporated community is Alkabo.
