The Silver Valley Invites Everyone to "Come Work, Play & Live"
Kellogg was settled in the 1870's when silver and gold mines created boom towns throughout the area. Kellogg has a rich mining and pioneer heritage. It is home to the world's longest gondola at Silver Mountain Ski Resort, Crystal Gold Mine, Staff House Museum, and so much more.
Wallace is known as the "Silver Capital of the World", a small historic town with the best collection of turn-of-the-century architecture in the Pacific Northwest with several buildings dating back to 1890.
Mullan is in the east end of the Silver Valley mining district. The town was named for West Point graduate John Mullan, who was in charge of selecting a wagon route between Fort Benton (Montana) and Fort Walla Walla (Washington).
Osburn is in the heart of the Silver Valley just south and parallel to highway 90. This community has several amenities such as a school, library, fire department, senior center, post office, restaurants and grocery store, two parks and an industrial area.
Wardner is located just above Kellogg and gets its name from an entrepreneur by the name of James Wardner, a partner in the Bunker Hill and Sullivan mines.
Pinehurst is located further west as the valley widens. Services in the mostly residential community include a library, grade school, fire department post office and one of the two valley golf courses.
Smelterville prides itself as the industrial area of the valley and was originally named for its lead and zinc smelters. Smelterville has recently gained prominence in Shoshone County due to the addition of a Wal-Mart Supercenter.
