This Vault In A Small Town In Idaho May Hold A Piece of Wild West History
Idaho has quite an interesting history and a part of that includes outlaws, robberies, and shootouts. Butch Cassidy is one of the most famous outlaws in the Old West and while he grew up in Southern Utah, he still made history here in Idaho. In fact, Montpelier, located in southern Idaho and just north of Bear Lake, is the location of the last standing bank in the entire world that Cassidy and his gang robbed. Today, you can visit this bank and even get a glimpse of what may be the original vault where Cassidy stole thousands of dollars.
