Alexander and Hannah Duffes, in 1885 homesteaded on 160 acres, with the purpose of creating a town. James McGee, saw the possibilities in the land east of Caldwell also. The next year, Duffes and McGee formed the Nampa Land and Improvement Company, dividing the property into lots Duffes refused to sell town lots to anyone who intended to build a saloon on them. He was a very religious man and dreamed of a town with no saloon. This caused people to refer to the town of Nampa as “New Jerusalem”. It is interesting to note that “The Nampa Progress”, Nampa ’s first newspaper, lists in June 1888, that there were 28 businesses in Nampa , of which three were saloons. Ironically, twenty-one years later, the Duffes home was moved and a brewery built in its place.
