Learn more about Shelley

The city of Shelley is located in Bingham County, Idaho and has a population of over 4.400 residents. Shelley Real Estate is usually very serene and affordable, Shelley faces the Blackfoot Mountains and rests along the eastern side of the Snake River. The city much like the state is proud of its potatoes, which the celebrate at the city’s “Idaho Annual Spud Day”. The event features games like tug of war over a pit of mashed potatoes, a free baked potato to attendees, live bands and a parade. Even the local high school mascot is a regal spud, a russet-burbank potato wearing a robe and crown and carrying a scepter.

The city’s beginnings are somewhat unusual, it all started with the dream of one John F. Shelley who wanted to open a store. A simple dream with no simple solution as there was no community nearby from which to get the supplies for building. Shelley made a deal with the railroad to make a special stop to drop off the lumber and supplies he needed, but they would only comply if he could unload the items in less than 20 minutes. With the help of Chris Mickelson, Shelley was able to manage the feat and so the history of the town began. Soon after the railroad spur was named after Shelley and in 1904 when the town was established it too took on the founders name. In September of that same year the city was damaged by a fire that destroyed 7 buildings on State Street. Two buildings survived Nalder’s furniture and a mercantile store, it was a hard blow for the newly formed city.

The city has a relaxed atmosphere and hometown appeal that welcomes residents and visitors alike. Shelley real estate includes homes for sale and rental and lease properties as well.
