This is the most famous gold-producing area in Idaho history. Idaho City was the city that made miners, broke men and caught on fire four times! The gold pulled from Idaho City helped finance the Union and help win the Civil War. And there is still gold to be found today. Some estimate that only a third of the gold in the basin was pulled out of the mines, streams and adits over a century ago. For more information about Idaho City, please click here.
