Market Lake

 

Location of sign - I-15 South Mile Marker 142

 

Photo taken- June 2008

 

Market Lake Historical Marker in Idaho

 

Text of sign:

 

Market Lake

 

The flat irrigated fields that stretch to the next interchange used to be a great Indian and trappers hunting ground in a old lake that

came and went.

 

In historic times, Market Lake was formed during the Snake River Flood of 1853.  When a new railroad grade blocked the over-

flow channel leading from the river, the lake disappeared for a time after 1887.  Later irrigation seepage restored the lake, and 

now the level is regulated for farming and for a wildlife refuge.

 

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 323.
