Living in Idaho

Contrary to popular belief, Idaho has more to offer than the best potatoes in the world. Native Idahoans have incredible pride in the natural beauty and hidden gems of the state, and newcomers discover exciting adventures and stunning views. Below is a list of Superior Realty’s favorite spots in the state.

Silver City, Idaho

Located in Owyhee County, this ghost town is full of history and hidden adventures from the height of the gold and silver mining age. While it is no longer an active mining town, some small-scale miners still find the occasional treasure. Precious metals were first discovered in this area in 1864 and the town was the home of a booming economy until the 1940s. Fun fact: One person served as the police chief, mayor, fire chief, and more as he was the only permanent resident of the town.
