History

The area around what is now known as Idaho Falls was primarily founded by farmers and ranchers. There was no significance of the area till 1864. In 1864, Harry Rickets built and operated a ferry on the snake river. The ferry served a new tide of westward migration and travel on the Montana Trail. Idaho Falls as we know it today became a permanent settlement when freighter Matt Taylor built a timber-frame toll bridge across a narrow black basaltic gorge of the river 7 miles (11km) downstream from the ferry. The bridge improved travel for settlers moving north and west, and for miners, freighters, and others seeking riches in the gold fields of Idaho especially the boom towns of Bannack and Virginia City.
