HISTORY OF EAGLE
City of Eagle grew from a sleepy village of 350 in 1970 to today’s bustling community of well over 20,000. Eagle’s
early history was set in motion when gold was discovered in the Boise Basin in 1862. Many chose to seek their fortune mining, but a select few came to understand that the mining towns desperately needed the agricultural products that were fast becoming the mainstay of Boise and its river valley to the west, and they centered their efforts on those needs.
Truman C. Catlin was one of those farsighted settlers who quickly realized that his real gold was to be found in farming and claimed 160 acres on Eagle Island. Originally naming 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.
