Beaver Canyon

 

After Montana's gold rushes began in 1862, thousands of miners came past here and a Beaver Canyon stage station was built here.


Freighters and travelers on stage lines from Salt Lake to Montana stopped at this station until Utah and Northern Railway service

reached here in 1879.  Large ranches also were supplied here until 1897, when they decided to move their Beaver Canyon town

to a better site at Spencer.

 

Text prepared by the Idaho Historical Society  Marker made & installed by Idaho Transportation Department.

 

Graphics on the sign - In addition to the text there is a map of Idaho with the signs location marked and the notation that this is 

sign number 222.
