Chesterfield is a Mormon pioneer town founded in 1880 along the Old Oregon Trail in southeast Idaho. A visit to Chesterfield is a unique trip back in time and a chance to experience the rural agricultural life of a community whose deep faith helped them endure the hardships of life on the frontier. Now unoccupied, 27 structures overlooking the beautiful Portneuf Valley near Bancroft, Idaho are undergoing loving restoration by descendants of the early settlers and volunteers. The meeting house now is a museum and tours of the townsite are available. This is a special experience for youth groups, school groups, family reunions, and family groups. Chesterfield is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
