La Paz County was established in 1983 when residents of the northern part of Yuma County voted to form a separate county. The name ("the peace" in Spanish) was taken from the ghost town of La Paz on the Colorado River, which forms the western boundary of the county.

The newly formed county encompasses a number of famous mineral localities, such as the Red Cloud mine, which formerly were within the boundaries of Yuma County. Specimen labels and literary references which were prepared prior to 1983 (and probably some prepared since) still place those localities in Yuma County.
