"A Great Place to Live"
The city of Burley was founded in 1905 and is beautifully situated next to the winding Snake River in the shadows of the mountains. With a population of 10,436 in 2015, it is the county seat for Cassia County, although portions of Burley are also in Minidoka County.
Burley has diversified beyond agriculture as national companies relocated there and existing businesses remain strong and are thriving. Efforts to market Cassia and Minidoka counties together through a community partnership that spotlighted low land labor costs has been successful in landing new business. The merging of the two counties is coined "Mini-Cassia."
