Founded in 1889, Pocatello is known as the “Gateway to the Northwest.”  As pioneers, gold miners and settlers traveled the Oregon Trail, they passed through the Portneuf Gap south of town.  Stage and freight lines and the railroad soon followed, turning our community into a trade center and transportation junction.
