  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Carmen is a tiny town of under 600 located along U. S. Highway 93 in Lemhi County in Central Idaho. Carmen began around the late 1860s and had an influx of ranchers in 1872. Carmen was named for Benjamin Carmen who built a sawmill on the nearby creek which also bears his name in the late 1860s (not named after a dark eyed senorita named Carmen like I thought). The cute little Carmen Post Office on U. S. Highway 93 was completed in 1935 replacing the post offices operated from various homes and businesses since its establishment in 1902.

    • North Fork
      North Fork is a tiny town of about 200 located along U. S. Highway 93 in Lemhi County in Central Idaho. North Fork began in the late 1800s and was named for its location at the confluence of the North Fork and Main Fork of the Salmon Rivers. Lewis and Clark and their Corps of Discovery passed through this canyon in late August 1805 while trying to find an easy water route to the Pacific Ocean. A small advance party camped near what is now North Fork with a group of friendly Indians. Lewis and Clark explored a few miles of the Salmon River here and determined that the rapidly moving water made passage by canoe "entirely impossible”. They bought packhorses from the local Indians and traveled 110 miles north to an old Indian trail across the mountains.

      Years later buffalo hunters transited an Indian trail near here that led from what would become Lewiston. Around 1835 a missionary named Samuel Parker crossed the trail with a Nez Perce trading party and in 1862 prospectors eager to participate in the Montana Gold Rush and Lewiston merchants hoping to get some of the money brought in by the mines, transited this route.

    • Gibbonsville
      Gibbonsville is a tiny town of about 53 (down 4% since 2000) located along U. S. Highway 93 in Lemhi County in Central Idaho. Gibbonsville began around 1870 and was named for Colonel John Gibbon, who served in the area during the Nez Perce conflict in 1877. The area had some habitation by Indian tribes for many years, then between 2 and 5 September 1805, Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery were in this area looking for an easier passage through the rugged Idaho Mountains. Eventually they went over the mountains to the Bitterroot Valley on the other side. While making this transit they had their first contact with the Flathead Indians who spoke a language "stranger than any they had heard". In 1877, a major lode of gold was discovered in the area. In 1878, Gibbonsville Merchant Jeremiah Fahey built a wagon road (which followed a similar route as U. S. Highway 93) from Gibbonsville to Montana which met up with a Utah and Northern Railway terminal.

      There are still remnants and evidence of the old Fahey Wagon Road along the highway. British investment in 1880, the wagon road, and an influx of miners and other pioneers, enables Gibbonsville to grow rapidly and produce over 2 million dollars’ worth of gold ore by 1899. After the mining profits dwindled so did the population. Today Gibbonsville is a tiny town in a very beautiful area.
