Click on the image above to be taken directly to the timeline.

The timeline above is a comprehensive listing of the most important dates included in the Historical Atlas. The timeline is organized between five themes: cattle ranching, dude ranching, homesteading, Snake River Land Company, and tourism. These themes were developed to show the different patterns of land use in the valley, starting with the homesteading era in 1884. A separate timeline for Native American history can be found here.
