History

 

 

 

 

 


Shoshone has long been considered the main railroad station in Idaho's Magic Valley region. The much larger community of Twin Falls 26 miles (42 km) to the south never developed a strong railroad presence due to the logistical issues presented by its location south of theSnake River Canyon. For many years Shoshone was the only Amtrak stop in south central Idaho.

A few miles north of Shoshone are the Shoshone Ice Caves, hollow subterranean lava tubesthat stay cool enough for the ice inside them to remain frozen throughout the summer. In the days before refrigeration, this feature, coupled with the railroad, made Shoshone popular with travelers as "the only place for hundreds of miles where one could get a cold beer."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Economy

 

 

 

 

 


Today, Shoshone still has one bar, but also boasts a cafe, a movie theater, and a grocery store—unusual for such a small town. While limited retail jobs exist, Shoshone is primarily a farming and dairy community.

Shoshone is home to a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) facility .
The town also has a small medical clinic, and recently built a new K-12 school building.

In recent years Shoshone has become a bedroom community for people working in neighboring Blaine County due to an often dramatic difference in cost of living between the two locales. The resort cities of Ketchum and Sun Valley are 55 miles (89 km) north on Highway 75. This commuting phenomenon has contributed greatly to recent growth in the Shoshone area. Shoshone also has a few historical buildings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Culture

 

 

 

 

 


Shoshone hosts the Mannie Shaw's Old Time Fiddler's Jamboree on the courthouse lawn each year on the second Sunday in July.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Geography

 

 

 

 

 

 


Shoshone is located at 42°56′12″N 114°24′28″W (42.936742, -114.407816), at an elevation of 3,963 feet (1,208 m) above sea level.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.16 square miles (3.00 km2), of which, 1.14 square miles (2.95 km2) is land and 0.02 square miles (0.05 km2) is water. The Little Wood River runs through the town.

Much of the land around Shoshone is lava rock, which can make excavation for building problematic, and limits the amount of useful farmland.
