The city of Hailey was founded in 1881, and became the first city in the state to have an electric light system, as well as the first telephone exchange. This beautiful map provides a look back to the early beginnings of the city. Complete reference list below.

Map includes the following booster statement: 

Wood River.

The Wood River Valley is located near the center of Alturas County, Idaho Territory, in the heart of an immense Mining and fine Agricultural District. Its easily developed and well-paying mines have attracted the attention of capitalists, and the out-put of mining camps, only in their infancy, support not only several good-sized towns with thriving business men located to stay; but a long and finely equipped line of railroad, built by the sagacity and enterprise of the Union Pacific Railway. It is certainly a poor man's paradise. Mines that pay from the grass roots. Thousands of acres of land produced fabulous crops with ordinary cultivation, and a home market paying good prices and steady demand. Hailey, the town shown in the foreground of the accompanying lithograph, is the most popular and thriving town in the Wood River Valley. In every thing it is abreast of the times, and its steady growth will, in a time not far distant, place it among the largest cities of the North-West.
