Located beneath Interstate 90 and halfway between the Lookout Pass Ski And Recreation Area and the Silver Mountain Ski resort is the historic mining town of Wallace, Idaho. Known as the “Silver Capital of the World”, Wallace has produced over 1.2 billion ounces of silver since 1884. Today, silver mining is still a rich resource for the Silver Valley market but it’s the pristine mountain environment that attracts outdoor enthusiasts from around the world that supports its local economy.
The residents and businesses that makeup Wallace are warm and friendly and are proud to offer a variety of shopping, recreational and dining opportunities. With unmatched recreation, outstanding scenery and a safe, welcoming community, it’s no surprise that when people pull off the highway they fall for Wallace to build a new life.
