From the July 14, 1927 News Record:

With the 1927 assessment about completed, the county assessor’s office reports that the valuation of the taxable property in the 5,000 square miles of territory embraced in Campbell County will be much greater than last year, and that it is expected that the total amount will pass the $12 million mark. This will mean that Campbell County will be advanced to a first-class county as provided by the laws of the state.
