Beginning in 1862, a gold rush to western Montana brought thousands of travelers from Salt Lake City through Beaver Canyon adjacent to Beaver Creek in eastern Idaho. The Beaver Canyon stage station was established to meet the area’s growing transportation needs and continued until the railway reached Beaver Canyon in 1880. Today, visitors can enjoy observing this historical site in person.
