Beck-Field & Associates, Pocatello, Idaho
IDAHO – “Gateway to the Northwest” - The city of Pocatello is located in southeast Idaho and nestled at 4,448 feet in the western foothills of the Rocky Mountains along the Oregon Trail. This city has been recognized by Forbes as a “Best Small Place for Business” five years in a row, as well as ranked one of the top ten small places to move and raise a family.
Founded in 1889, Pocatello is known as the “Gateway to the Northwest”. As the pioneers, gold miners and settlers traveled the Oregon Trail, they passed through the Portneuf Gap south of town. Stage and freight lines and the railroad soon followed, turning our community into a trade center and transportation junction.
Pocatello has an unusually desirable four-season climate where clear, sunny and dry is the norm. Our 32 parks, Museum of Natural History, Fort Hall Replica, several golf courses, Rose Park Aquatic Complex, Nordic Center cross-country skiing, mountain biking & hiking trails, and the Pocatello Zoo are just a few of the attractions.
