Payette County History

Established February 28, 1917, with its county seat at Payette. Payette was originally settled as a railroad camp in the 1860s and called Boomerang for the log boom on the Payette River. The site, and the community which grew around it, was later named in honor of the area's first white settler, Francois Payette, a Canadian fur trapper and explorer with the North West Company who arrived in 1818.

Geography: Land and Water

As reported by the Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 410 square miles (1,100 km 2 ), of which 407 square miles (1,050 km 2 ) is land and 3.4 square miles (8.8 km 2 ) (0.8%) is water.

Payette county is located close to the center of Idaho. The county is the smallest county in Idaho by area.


History of the City of Payette

The City of Payette, the county seat of Payette County, owes its origin to the building of the Oregon Short Line Railroad. The first settler in the town was David S. Lamme, a native of Hancock County, Ill., who came to Idaho in 1864, when he was only twenty-two years of age and for a number of years was engaged in mining. On May 22, 1893, he went to the mouth of the Payette River, where he saw the engineers surveying the route of the railroad, and decided to locate at that point. Purchasing a small tract of land, he built a store room, obtained a small stock of goods from Chicago and opened a general store, giving the place the name of "Boomerang." In July of the same year A. B. and F. C. Moss, who had a contract to deliver 250,000 ties to the railroad company, established their camp near the mouth of the Payette and also established a general store near Lamme's.

In 1884 the railroad was completed to Huntington, Oregon, and a number of settlers located in the little hamlet of Boomerang. Among them were John and Samuel Applegate, S.W. King, Henry Irvin, Peter Pence, W.C. Johnson, Jacob Stroup, August and Adolph Jacobsen, William Iretan, John Henshaw, Benjamin, John and William Bivens and John Ashbaugh. A sawmill was erected near the hamlet by W.A. Coughanour, a schoolhouse was built, and the name of the place was changed to "Payette," after a Frenchman who had been for years in the employ of the Hudson's Bay Company. The growth of the village was slow until 1890, when David S. Lamme, the original pioneer, built a brick block and enlarged his stock of merchandise. A two-story hotel, the bank building and the Odd-Fellows building were erected the same year. The first carload of fruit was shipped from Payette in 1891 and in that year the village was incorporated.

The population of Payette in 1910 was 1,948 and it had been incorporated as a city a short time before that census was taken. In 1918 the population was estimated at 2,500. By an act of the Legislature, approved on February 28, 1917, the northern part of Canyon County was erected into the County of Payette and the City of Payette was designated as the county seat.

Payette has two strong banks, two weekly newspapers, a canning factory that ships about seventy-five carloads of canned peas and fruits every year, a sawmill, brick and vinegar factories, a plant for evaporating fruit, two flour mills, waterworks, electric light plant, thirteen churches, four public school buildings, a public library and claims the finest Young Men's Christian Association building and civic center of any city of similar size in the United States. According to statements of the railroad company, Payette ships more fruit and poultry than any other point on the Oregon Short Line in Idaho.


Early History of New Plymouth, Idaho

Late in the year of 1895, the Payette Valley Irrigation and Water Power Co. platted a township of 325 acres. It was called the New Plymouth Colony. Within a few months, 35 families had settled in the Village. It was in Canyon County but changed to Payette County in 1917. With the building of the Payette Branch of the Oregon Short Line Railroad, the village began to grow. New Plymouth became a City in 1948, rather than a Village.

By 1910 the population had risen to 274. There was a lot of building going on and new business’s starting up. The new brick school was built-in 1904, and a new section added to it in 1915. In 1920, the population was estimated to be 400 people. There was a Bank, a Newspaper, 4 Fruit Packing warehouses, 1 modern public School, and several well-stocked Stores. They also had water, lights, and telephones. The roads were still unpaved until 1926.

Trying to reconstruct the location of some of these business places with the dates and owners is difficult. They changed hands and were moved or just disappeared, over the years.
