Since February 4, 1864, Shoshone County, also known as the Silver Valley, was
the first organized government in the Idaho boundaries. It was named for the Native American Shoshone Tribe. The first county seat was in Pierce and it moved three times, first in 1885 to Murray, in 1890 to Osburn, and finally to Wallace in 1893 where the county seat remains today.  Shoshone County has a colorful background of history and strong people from all walks of life. Mining is and always has been the county's best known industry and is one of the greatest mining regions in the country. In 1883, the Last Gold Rush in the lower 48 U.S. states made Murray, Idaho the center of the Coeur d'Alene Mining District. Shoshone County is also known for it beautiful forests and mountains and valleys. The population was 12,765 at the 2010 census.
