Moving Destination: Moving to Idaho

Idaho is a sweet mix of seclusion and big city entertainment; all while being surrounded by breathtaking sights. When considering moving to a new area, think about what Idaho has to offer.


At the start of the 19th century, Idaho was part of Oregon Country. This area caused major friction between the United States and the United Kingdom. It wasn’t till the signing of the Oregon Treaty of 1846, that the land became U.S. property. Idaho, however, was still considered to be part of Oregon until it became an official state. Idaho then became part of the Washington Territory. The Clearwater River in Idaho led Lewis and Clark through the state while on their famous expedition in 1805 and 1806 on their way back. Idaho’s original capital city was Lewiston, until a resolution for Boise to become the capital city was passed in 1864. This decision brought with it conflict and division of the settlers. The proposition passed by one vote on the territorial supreme court. The mayor and secretary of Lewiston were bitter about the decision, so they retaliated by stealing the archives, territorial seal, and treasury then fleeing. While Lewiston will not be forever known as being the capital city, it will be remembered for having the first public school in Idaho in 1862.
