Gold was discovered in the Boise Basin in 1862. Polete Mace, Truman C. Catlin and neighbors built the first irrigation ditch in 1864 Truman C. Catlin could see that buying the land and farming was a better choice. Catlin was a native of Illinois, filed a claim to 160 acres on Eagle Island. Catlin originally named his island home after his native state; Catlin was soon persuaded to rename the island to reflect the large number of bald eagles that made the island their home as well.
