Bannock and Shoshone Indians had long since made the area their home, but it was not until the 1800’s when trappers and hunters came to trade with the Indians. In 1832 Captain Benjamin Bonneville visited the area to hunt. Nathaniel J Wyeth establishes the Fort Hall Trading Post.
The original land was acquired in a land rush when the Indian Lands were opened to homesteading. Mr. Abe Pierce homesteaded one hundreds and sixty acres on the north side of Chubbuck Road. Mr. Lindquist acquired the rest.
A railroad conductor named Earl Chubbuck, who lived in Blackfoot, was in charge of loading railroad cars with agricultural produce from the area. All produce in the area was loaded on to the trains at the Chubbuck Siding. The run became know as the Chubbuck Beet Run. It was later changed or shortened to Chubbuck.
The Idaho State Archives has no copies of newspapers published in Chubbuck. Some of the newspapers of nearby towns that are in the Archives, may be of interest to residents of Chubbuck.
