Wallace City

Wallace City Hall is located at 703 Cedar Street, Wallace, ID 83873; phone: 208-752-1147.

William R. Wallace built a cabin here in 1884 and named his settlement Placer Center in reference to the open-pit mining that was being attempted throughout the area. In 1885 the place name was changed to Wallace and the following year the railroad arrived as the population reached 500 persons. The successful Idaho silver mining enterprises resulted in the area becoming known as Silver Valley.
