This quaint small town 45 miles from Boise, with its classic western storefronts, was once the largest mining town in the Pacific Northwest. Idaho City was once a rip-roaring gold mining area, rivaling anything the California '49ers could have created. Many of the original buildings are still in use by the almost 500 residents who make their home here today. Eighteen historical buildings line the town, including I.O.O.F. Masonic Lodge and Catholic church. Visitor Center is open daily.
