This is the center of the Coeur d'Alene mining district, which in recent years has adopted the name "Silver Valley." It is the nation's leading producer of silver and covers an area of about 300 square miles.
Kellogg is the center of this historically rich area and most of its residents have been connected with the mining industry.
I-90 runs through Kellogg, which is in Shoshone County.
Today, it is an internationally-known ski resort area, and "Silver Mountain" now competes for fame with the valley.
