History & History Related Items

Idaho Falls history:

This area was originally named Taylor's Crossing and was established about 1860 around one of the few fording places on the upper Snake River. The Ferry was operated and owned by J.M. Taylor, for whom the crossing was named. Though not in the gold hunting areas, Idaho Falls was en route to most of them, thus was affected by the gold rush boom and bust. When the gold rush diminished, the local residents had to find new ways to earn a living. They began to dig irrigation ditches to water the arid area. The land blossomed and established a highly productive agricultural base for the local economy. The Idaho Falls are located close to town. The Falls, located on the Snake River, are not high, but are beautiful and especially wide - 1,500 Feet wide to be exact.
