    Default Anyone heard of Humphrey, Idaho?

    I know that it is in Clark County, on the interstate and it had a school.

    I would appreciate the information!

    Thanks!

    Humphrey (Clark). 6526' T13N R36E sec 4. In the N central part of the county on Beaver Creek and UPRR; 5 mi S of the Montana line. The community began in the 1880's when it was discovered that the site was ideal for storing ice in the winter months; this occupation lasted until the early 1920's.

    Named for the first postmaster, Samuel G. Humphrey, who was also manager of the Monida-Yellowstone Stage Company.

    Hope this helps.

    Hiya George....how ya doin' in beautiful SW Idaho? Have you ever been further sw of there to see if anything is left of Old Ft Boise? Always wanted to stop and see that place, but heard there was only a monument or plaque remaining to mark the spot.

    Not anything there that I know of now. There was two Fort Boise's. One is here in Boise. Some remains there. Armory, Cemetery and some other buildings. Also they will find some unexploded ordinance in the hills still. Lots of neat old stuff here in SW Idaho.
