Additional Details:
Wallace, in the Coeur d'Alene Mining District - The highly interesting Wallace Museum, at left, contains some of the many items of historic interest in this famous mining town. Wallace was founded in the middle 1880's, and it was "gold in them thar hills" that brought the first rush. This city of approx. 3,000 pop. has since developed as the Silver Capital of the world. It became the county seat of Shoshone County in 1899, and more than 90% of Idaho's mineral wealth comes from this county. Idaho leads the nation in silver production.
