History

History of Oneida County

History of Malad

History of Ridgedale

The area, more commonly referred to as Pocatello Valley, is located about fifteen miles southwest of Malad Idaho (Latitude: 42.03 North/Longitude 112.32 West).  The area is a closed valley (approximately 15,000 acres) about 5000 feet above sea level located on the Utah/Idaho border but most of the region falls in Idaho. Homesteaded mostly by early Mormon settlers in the late 1800's and early 1900's from both northern Utah and southern Idaho the valley once sported a steady population for most of the months of the year sufficient to support church, social and educational activities.  As agricultural endeavors over the years have required ever larger operations and with improved transportation the valley currently is relatively lightly populated with rather large dry land farming operations underway.  The area was electrified in the 1950's and telephone service became common in the 1970's.  The area was struck by an intense earthquake in 1975 (Google: 1975 Idaho Earthquake) generating extensive damage on farming facilities in the area but due to the low population density no one was injured.  Access to the area is largely weather dependent and researchers should be advised of that fact.  Of historical research interest be advised also that most of the early structures, with the exception of two early school buildings, have been destroyed.   It should be also noted that there are no known cemeteries in the local.
