In 1862 Tim Goodale opened an Oregon Trail Cutoff which descended a steep ridge just west of here into the valley below.
Later that year a gold rush to Boise Basin came up Payette Valley, and the next summer farmers along the river started raising crops to supply the mines. For a year or more they were troubled by a notorious band of horse thieves based a Pickett's Corral located at the head of the valley before you. Late in 1864 the farmers organized the Payette Vigilance Committee and drove out the Pickett Corral Gang.
