“a historic city in the Panhandle”
Town where the film "Dante's Peak" was filmed. Wallace is a historic city in the Panhandle region of the U.S. state of Idaho and the county seat of Shoshone County in the Silver Valley mining district. Wallace sits alongside the South Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River (and Interstate 90) and the town's population was 784 at the 2010 census. Wallace is the principal town of the Coeur d'Alene silver-mining district, which produced more silver than any other mining district in the United States. Burke-Canyon Road runs through historic mining communities — many of them now deserted — north and eastward toward the Montana border. East of Wallace, the Route of the Hiawatha (rails-to-trails) and the Lookout Pass ski area are popular with locals and tourists.
Cute little town. The towns people are very nice. Love the center of the universe. Got a kick out of that. Checked out the little shops Hopefully next time we can take the miner tour next time.
My mother and I have visited Wallace on the last weekend of September 2017...and early on the first day of the next month. Mom was excited to get a new Jeep Renegade, but I was stoked to see the town featured in Universal Studios' 1997 disaster film "Dante's Peak."
We arrived the day after the local spring classic car show. We had a wonderful time nonetheless, although there only appeared to be Antique stores and Thrift Shops in town. We were able to do some shopping and walk the town.
It took us a while to find the main street from the movie, but once we did we were quite happy.
Cute! Fun to walk around the town.
In the intersection pictured, is a manhole cover for the center of the universe.
