Wallace, Idaho & the Silver Valley

Wallace, Idaho is a gem of a Wild West mining town perched in the legendary Silver Valley of North Idaho. Conveniently located just off Interstate 90 in the Panhandle of North Idaho, between Washington and Montana, Wallace boasts breathtaking mountain views, a beautifully-preserved downtown of Queen Anne buildings, and a homespun friendliness that captivates today’s visitors - just as it always has throughout Wallace’s spirited history on the frontier of the American West.

No wonder that visitors -- from the town’s founder, Colonel W. R. Wallace, to Teddy Roosevelt in 1903, to Hollywood moguls in the 1970’s and 1980’s looking to capture the unique imagery of the American West -- have found their way to the unique outpost of Wallace, representing something indigenous, special and even grand about small-town America. Wallace truly is what America once was.

With its recent evolution from bustling mining town to recreation and tourism center for the Inland Empire, Wallace and the Wallace Inn beckon to serve as your base camp for year-round Northwestern adventures in recreation and in unearthing the area’s remarkable history.
