John Welch settled the area in 1860; he established a station for freight. He was on his way to the Oregon and the mining camps in Idaho City. Decades later, more settlers arrived and began bring fish and product to the valley for sale. In 1912 the town was named Cascade after the dramatic falls that existed on the North Fork of the Payette River. A dam built in 1948, covered the fall, but the name stuck.
