My North Dakota Diary
Golden Valley County
'Golden Valley County takes its name from the far-famed fertile Golden Valley, which lies in the western portion of the original county of Billings. The county is somewhat rough, but clothed with rich grasses and the whole valley is exceptionally fertile, and permits of the general purpose farms; stock raising combined with extensive agricultural operations are the chief industries. Beach is the county seat.' Source: North Dakota Blue Book -- 1942
