Inscription.  In 1862, a noted Western scout, Mose Milner, started Mount Idaho on his gold rush trail.
But when civic leaders resisted farm efforts to organize a grange there in 1874, Grangeville grew up as a better located town. Although Mount Idaho became county seat from 1875 to 1902, and had an important Chinese community, Grangeville soon surpassed its older rival. Most of its early buildings have disappeared.
 
Erected by Idaho Department of Transportation. (Marker Number 352.)
