In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt visited Wallace, Idaho. These photos show President Roosevelt on 6th Street, turning onto Bank Street, in a parade. He gave a Presidential Address that day.
Two days later, President Roosevelt visited Boise, Idaho and gave another Presidential Address.
Eight years later, in April 1911, President Roosevelt visited the University of Idaho campus. Roosevelt arrived at 6:30pm on Sunday, April 9, and took a room at the Hotel Moscow. He woke to rain and clouds the next morning, had breakfast at Ridenbaugh Hall from 7:45-8:45am “with a large and select party,” planted a tree (that still stands today) in front of the Administration Building, and then spoke, just as the rain stopped, to a reported 8,000 people from a platform made of sacks of “North Idaho’s famous wheat.”1
