In 1859, John Mullan built the Mullan Road through what would later become Wallace. At the time, he noticed promising quartz outcroppings, which were often a telltale sign of the presence of veins of gold. However, he downplayed the possibility of gold to his building crews out of fear that any discovery of gold would lead to a stampede of miners to the area. In 1882, however, Andrew J. Prichard did hit pay-dirt on a stream about 12 miles north of the future Wallace, which set off the feared "general stampede" into the region. Colonel William R. Wallace, who was one of the prospectors attracted to the area, built a cabin at a site he called Placer Center.
Wallace also invested money to build access roads, put up lot fences, and made other improvements, and it wasn't long before the area grew into a small town. It would be many years before the town came to be called Wallace, however, as it underwent a long series of land disputes and was even destroyed in a fire. Eventually, the town became known for the man who originally settled it.
Today, Wallace's more than 1,000 miles of logging, mining and Forest Service roads have been converted into the largest snowmobile, mountain bike and ATV trail system in the world. You can also take mine tours and learn how miners extracted silver and quartz. Beer lovers should take the time to stop by the North Idaho Mountain Brewery, where Sunset Red, dark Black IPA, Baldy Blonde and Pulaski Porter (named after forest ranger Big Ed Pulaski) are on tap.
