In it's early days, Payette was a typical "wild west" town. Crime was dealt with by Old Testament law... "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth."  But as time went on and churches were established, dealings with criminals were altered. As this remote area began, it was invaded by horse thieves, highwaymen, bank and stage robbers. Then, as more people traveled the lonely roads, the "loot" increased which brought even more lawlessness. Finally, when it reached the point of absolute lawlessness prevailing, it was time to bring law and order to the area. The Payette Valley Vigilantes were organized in 1863 and made up of farmers and ranchers who had enough!  

Since then Payette has remained a peaceful, relaxing and friendly town with lots of charm from the Wild West days remaining in it's architecture.  Community events are family events, and their County Fair and 4th of July Festival are not to be outdown!

Kids run down the streets with fishing poles in hand and hang out at the local corner stores sipping on soda and eating candy and icecream.  Payette is truly a small town with an innocent charm that has been carried over through the decades by it's proud residents.  

Full of friendly, smiling faces always willing to say "Hello" or offer a hand, you would be lucky to call yourself a resident of Payette!  A quick drive through country roads will get you easily into the larger cities of Nampa or Boise nearby.  But when you are home, you enjoy the peaceful quiet that only a country setting can provide. 

If you are looking to find a ranch, a historic home in old town or a more modern lifestyle in one of the newer subdivisions that are popping up to call home, you will find it all here!  Contact me for your personal tour of historic Payette and all of its amazingly affordable real estate options!
