Boise began its existence on the Oregon Trail when the Hudson Bay Company set up a post in 1834 not far from Boise's present location. The fort was eventually abandoned until 1863 when the U.S. Army rebuilt it. It served as a staging area for Idaho City and due to the importance of the Oregon Trail and the traffic of emigrants and gold prospectors through it, Fort Boise prospered.
Boise was incorporated in 1863 and became the territorial capital in 1864. Through that time there were more gold strikes and the prosperity and population grew. Once the boom ended, the city faced significant hurdles in keeping its population. The land was arid and farming, at that time, was not a real option. The residents set up irrigation to counter the problem and slowly agriculture began to take root. With the success of the early irrigation, more dams and reservoirs were built to advance the water supply and increase the agricultural fortunes of the area.
