The rural community of Salmon, Idaho rests at the foot of the Beaverhead Mountain Range in the Lemhi River Valley. County seat of Lemhi County, Salmon is home to 3,112 residents as of the 2010 census and the community touts their “strong traditions of mining, lumbering and family ranching.”

The area’s geography makes for breathtaking views all year round. With multiple rivers and tributaries winding their way through the landscape to converge into the Salmon River, Salmon offers the modern-day adventurer a wide variety of outdoor recreational outlets such as whitewater rafting, outfitting, and fishing. Not only is the Salmon area rich in natural resources, it is also rich with history and is the birthplace of Sacajawea.

Near what is now the city of Salmon, Sacajawea was born into the AdaiDika Shoshone tribe in the late 1700’s. After the Lewis and Clark expedition crossed the Continental Divide in 1805, the group travelled into the Lemhi Valley in search of the Salmon River in hopes that it would guide them to the ocean. While they were in the area, the AdaiDika Shoshone tribe provided supplies and information to the expedition. Sacajawea accompanied the expedition, acting as an interpreter and guide. Not only was her role pivotal in the success of the expedition, but Sacajawea has since been recognized as an important part of early American history. Today, the Sacajawea Interpretive Culture and Education Center is located in Salmon.
