Wallace is a small, historic town located in the northeastern panhandle region of Idaho. It is the county seat for Shoshone County and is situated in the beautiful Silver Valley mining district. As of the 2000 census, it had a population of 960 residents. The town of Wallace sits alongside the South Fork of the Coeur dAlene River and beneath Interstate 90. The elevation is 2,728 feet above sea level and the town is about halfway between two popular ski and recreation areas. Wallace has long been known as the Silver Capital of the World, with 1.2 billion ounces of silver produced in Shoshone County since 1884. Silver mining is still an important part of the community, but city officials have made sure its done in total harmony with the pristine mountain environment in mind. The area is famous for its deep powdery snow and alpine skiing, and also the 72-mile Trail of the Coeur dAlenes paved bike path, which passes above Wallace, following the famous South Fork of the Coeur dAlene River through the narrow Silver Valley. East of Wallace, the Route of the Hiawatha Rails to Trails and the Lookout Pass Ski Area are also both popular with locals and tourists. The town of Wallace is also known for the fact that every single downtown building is on the National Register of Historic Places. This is why the government had to go over the town instead of through it, in order to build the Interstate Highway system in 1991. Wallace is host to an annual Depot Days and Classic Car Show in May, the Saturday before Mothers Day.

Wallace Weather & Climate

The Northern Panhandle Region of Idaho has a four-season climate. Located within the northern latitude, Idaho's Northern Panhandle has summer days that are long and sunny, with just enough rain to keep things very green and pretty. Temperatures can range from very warm in the summer to very cold in the winter. The major mountain ranges accumulate a deep snow cover in the winter. In spring, the melting snow pack provides irrigation water for the lower regions of the state. The major source of moisture for northern Idaho is the Pacific Ocean, although in summer there are some exceptions when moisture-laden air is brought in from the south.
