About Idaho

Idaho has a long history of being home to various native peoples for thousands of years before European settlers arrived. Initially, Idaho was considered part of the Oregon Country in the early 19th century. Later, it was included in the Washington Territory and Oregon Territory before being recognized as a state on July 3, 1890, becoming the 43rd state of the United States.

Many people wonder how Idaho got its name since there is no record of any other similar name. The truth is that Idaho was a made-up name. Initially, the state’s name was rejected because it had no Indian ties, but Congress ultimately decided to name it Idaho due to its association with wealth and fortune.

Idaho is the 14th largest state by area in the U.S., but it is the 7th least densely populated. Its capital and largest city is Boise.

Agriculture has been Idaho’s most significant sector historically, with the state’s potato crop being well-known. Idaho’s agricultural industry supplies around one-third of the country’s produce. Additionally, due to its industrial corridors, Idaho’s distribution centers are among the busiest in the nation, attracting many transportation companies.
