Franklin in Franklin County, Idaho — The American West (Mountains)
Idaho's only railroad serving Montana's thriving mining camps, reached here that year -- a time of depression between gold rushes, when Franklin was Idaho's largest city. Two years later, rail construction resumed, and freighters moved on. But Hatch's elegant house remains as a reminder of a bygone era.
Erected by Idaho Department of Transportation. (Marker Number 388.)
