Bancroft

Bancroft, Idaho is a little railroad town in Caribou County with only 377 residents. It was informally named after W. H. Bancroft the President and General Manager of the Oregon Short Line rail road company in 1892. Official designation as Bancroft Village occurred on July 23rd 1898. Over time Bancroft was incorporated as a City on Feb. 18th, 1941. The city sprang into existence when the railroad came into the area around 1882, Mormon Settler Parley P. Willey was contracted to supply timber for the rail ties. He relocated a saw mill from Chesterfield to Squaw Creek (now Bancroft). With the mill came employment, and men from all around came to Squaw Creek to work and over time the village grew to become Bancroft and into what exists today.
