Pocatello Real Estate
Pocatello. The name derives from a Shoshone Indian chief who allowed right of way passage for the railroad through the Fort Hall Indian Reservation. Long before the history books tell us about Lewis and Clark making the trek across Idaho in 1805, the Shoshone and Bannock tribes inhabited all of Southeastern Idaho. Sitting in a very strategic location for travel, through the Portneuf Valley, it is very surprising that Pocatello wasn’t “formed” until the late 1800s. As a Union Town, the railroad was very important running through Pocatello, with so much of the train travel from Utah, coming through Malad Valley and going through Fort Hall to Montana. Pocatello was the perfect location to start a town, a place to stop for Union workers, and now bolsters itself as a great place to live. Let’s rattle off a few great reasons why you should choose Pocatello as your new place of residence.
