9780738580272: Twin Falls (Images of America)

Images of America: Twin Falls tells the story of the transformation of a sagebrush plain into productive farmland at the beginning of the 20th century. Engineers and investors found a way to capture the water of the Snake River for extensive irrigation and completed Milner Dam and the related canal system in 1905. The success of the Twin Falls South Side Irrigation Tract was associated with other reclamation projects in the region, resulting in the permanent settlement of south-central Idaho. New residents built modern schools, fine homes, and imposing business blocks. Prosperous farms and orchards dotted the landscape. Twin Falls became a wholesale center for storing, processing, and shipping agricultural commodities in the United States and abroad.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Egleston Giraud lives in Salt Lake City. She has a master's degree in historic preservation from Cornell University and has worked as an architectural historian for the Idaho State Historical Society, the Salt Lake City Planning Division, and a transportation agency. Giraud began her career conducting a survey of historic buildings and sites in Twin Falls County and has been fascinated by the history, geography, and architecture of the region ever since. The author gathered photographs from a variety of sources to tell the story of the region, but relied primarily on the rich source of historic photographs taken by Clarence Bisbee, who was hired to promote the new irrigation tract to potential residents.
