Drawing its name from its placement at the confluence of the Snake and Blackfoot Rivers, the community of Blackfoot was founded in 1879. In its infancy, the community first served as an important stage station and then shifted in importance as a Union Pacific Railroad station. Today, Blackfoot revolves around an agricultural lifestyle and maintains the impressive distinction as the world’s largest potato producing region. Naturally, the town is referred to as the “Potato Capital of the World.” Blackfoot is also recognized as Idaho’s top grain producer.
