Lewis and Clark blazed a trail through Idaho in 1805, followed by English and American fur traders. Thousands of pioneers followed the Oregon Trail through southeast Idaho in the 1830s and 1840s, although the first settlement was established by Mormons in 1860. Gold fever stimulated immigration in the 1860s. The state was formed from the Idaho Territory, organized in 1863 when it separated from the Washington Territory.

1805-Explored by Lewis and Clark for the United States
1860-Premanently settled by Mormons
