Melba history:

Melba is a small town perched on a bluff overlooking Idaho's great Snake River. The town was settled in the early 1900's, and since the beginning, its economy has revolved around farming. Known by many as the "Seed Heart of America", some of the major crops coming from Melba valley have been sweet corn, beans, sugar beets, alfalfa hay, onion and carrot seed, potatoes, dairy products, and beef cattle.

Many family farms in Melba are now being operated by third and fourth generations. Some surnames, familiar during the last 50 years in Melba are Amos, Arnold, Baird, Ball, Benson, Bradshaw,Brown, Buzzell, Capps, Childs, Cook, Cram, Doser, Freitag, Friddle, Frisch, Fuhriman, Gant, Gardner, Givens, Graham, Greenfield, Griggs, Harris, Haynes, Herman, Hilton, Hoagland, James, Johnson, Kirkland, Leavitt, Matson, McClintick, McKellip, McMahan, Miller, Montgomery, Moore, Muller, Nelson, Olsen, Palmer, Pancheri, Parsons, Peck, Peckham, Peirsol, Pettijohn, Pine, Plummer, Potratz, Proesch, Reineke, Reynolds, Rinebarger, Robinson, Rowen, Seegar, Slonecker, Smith, Stidman, Stokes, Stoural, Swarthout, Webb, Whitten, Yarber and York.
