Fort Hall, Idaho

This week's interesting General Land Office record features a survey plat that displays the townsite of Fort Hall, Idaho. Fort Hall was originally built as a fur trading post in 1834. The fur trading post was destroyed by a flood in 1863, but in 1960, a replica was built in nearby Pocatello, Idaho, in an effort to preserve the legacy of the original layout of the trading post.
