1. Idahome Marker
Inscription. After wheat crops flourished in the dry farm area, Idahome sprang up here in 1916 as a railroad terminal. Irrigation projects boosted its Economy.
When wheat farms disappeared and highway traffic replaced rail service here, Idahome became a ghost town. Its grain elevator, lumber yards, stores, airport, oil company, school, newspaper, and people are only past memories. An elevator and a few building foundations marker its site.
 
Erected by Idaho Department of Transportation. (Marker Number 449.)
