Twin Falls, Idaho


Twice as nice

Nestled just south of the Snake River Canyon, Twin Falls, Idaho, is the most populous city within 100 miles. The number of arrowheads and other items discovered here is evidence that people have lived in the area for thousands of years. In time, it eventually became home to the Shoshone and Bannock tribes. Around the mid-19th century, a stage stop along Rock Creek provided a respite for travelers weary of riding through the desert. Dryland farmers were the next to arrive, but it wasn’t until I.B. Perrine founded the Twin Falls Land and Water Company that the valley truly became magic. Thanks to a series of canals, the surrounding desert was transformed into the rich agricultural area that exists today. The Snake River split into three cataracts at one time, but water normally flowed through only two of the cataracts — thus the name “Twin Falls.”
