Wallace continues its 100-plus year run as the world’s largest silver producer — making it the richest mining town still in existence, and the last town entirely listed on the National Register of Historic Places! Historic Wallace continues to diversify into a bigger, better and more attractive town with world-class recreation and tourism “mined” along with the area’s colorful, living history!
Enjoy more than 1,000 miles of mining, logging and Forest Service roads that have been turned into the world’s largest mountain bike, ATV and snowmobile trail system. Two world-class paths – the Route of the Hiawatha and Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes – beckon road and mountain bikers, walkers and roller bladers. Underground mine tours, train station, bordello and mine museums welcome the historically inquisitive, while others are entertained with classic silver, unique antique and pawn shops against a back of lush green forests, clean air, sunshine and friendly residents.
