Theatre in Idaho City—1863-1864
by Dr. Charles Lauterbach
A gold rush boomtown flush with cash and packed with characters attracted all sorts of entertainment, from saloons every ten yards or so along Main Street to an assortment of bawdy girls. In Idaho City, the newly-prosperous miners also had the desire to see live theatre, and there were many touring companies who arrived to take advantage of the opportunity, before the boom turned to bust.

Lapwai is an excellent example of an integrated Idaho town. “Indian people, African-Americans, non-Indians, Europeans, ranchers, farmers, river runners, cowboys, champion pow-wow dancers, Christians, native believers, business owners, and students call Lapwai home.” The result is a town that understands its history, has a clear vision of its future, and is proud of both.
