The historic mining town of Wallace (population 784) is nestled beneath Interstate 90, halfway between two ski and recreation areas in northern Idaho's beautiful Silver Valley. The town has long been famous as the "Silver Capital of the World" with 1.2 billion ounces of silver produced in Shoshone county since 1884. In fact, this is the only place on earth where more than a billion ounces of silver were mined in 100 years. This was done in spite of the violent mining wars of 1892 and 1899.
