The Outback Is A Quaint Family-Owned Resort In Idaho’s First Gold Rush Town
Here’s an interesting tidbit for you: the first discovery of gold in Idaho was made near Orofino Creek in 1860, approximately a mile north of the present-day town of Pierce. Therefore, Pierce is often referred to as Idaho’s very first Gold Rush town, and it remains an incredible reminder of the state’s early mining days. Visiting this historic town is a must for any Idahoan and there’s no better place to stay than this family-owned resort when you do.
