A Little History on Pierce Idaho:

In 1860, Captain E.D. Pierce and a half- dozen gold seeker were led though the mountains by secret route by Chief Timothy’s daughter, Jane.  With this discovery of gold in Canal Creek, thousands of miners poured into the area in search of gold. In 1861, Pierce was established, the first town in Idaho. In 1862, the territorial courthouse was built; making it the first government building in Idaho. The court house still stands today. In the 1890s, ‘green gold’- timber- was in great demand, and the largest stand of white pine in the nearby hills. The timber industry is still a thriving industry surrounding The Pierce area.
