Early Mining in Idaho

Friday, March 29, 2019, 2:00 AM - 3:30 AM

The Hagerman Valley Historical Society presents Early Mining in Idaho with a special look at Gold Dredging the Snake River. Gold started Idaho and the Civil War shaped its politics. We will examine the early mining history and its impact on Idaho. Included will be a trip along the Snake River where the elusive flour gold attracted many and enriched few. The program is presented by Idaho Mining Historian Tom Blanchard of Ketchum. Blanchard received his graduate training in history with emphasis on U.S. and Western history at San Francisco State University. Since moving to Idaho in 1977, he has focused on Idaho history, doing projects and research in Idaho for the past thirty years. He taught U.S. and Idaho and the Pacific Northwest history for the College of Southern Idaho and served on the board of the Idaho Humanities Council.
