People have been living in this area for thousands upon thousands of years — earlier generations found troves of arrowheads and other evidence of prehistoric people. Eventually, Shoshone and Bannock tribes called this place home.

By the mid-19th century, a stage stop along Rock Creek provided a respite for travelers weary of riding through the desert. Dry land farmers arrived next, but it wasn’t until I.B. Perrine founded the Twin Falls Land and Water Company that the valley truly became magic. Thanks to a series of canals, the surrounding desert was transformed into the rich agricultural area that exists today. (Perrine Bridge is named after this founding father.)

Incorporated in 1905, Twin Falls has continued to attract people from around the world who thrive among its open landscapes, easy way of life, and economic opportunities.
