The history of Ketchum-Sun Valley

Archaeological evidence indicates that as far back as 10,000 years ago, the Wood River Valley was home for Native American people. Not until the 1870s, when gold was discovered in the West, did the European settlers and prospectors begin to populate the valley in search of fortune. By the early 1880s, Ketchum was not only a booming mining town, but it also was famous for its healing hot springs. The Guyer Hot Springs Resort, located on Warm Springs Road, was popular with people from around the country for its mineral waters, croquet, tennis, and fun. By the end of 1884, Ketchum boasted 13 saloons, four restaurants, two hotels, and all types of businesses necessary for a thriving town. With the grand opening of Sun Valley, "America’s First Destination Ski Resort," celebrities flocked to the area to see America’s new grand dame of ski resorts. Ernest Hemingway fell in love with Sun Valley and eventually made it his home; he finished For Whom the Bell Tolls in Suite 206.
