(above right) The reduction in size of the Fort Hall Indian Reservation and early rail routes, 1868-1902. The Bannock and Shoshone were relocated to the Fort Hall Indian Reservation beginning in 1869. The original reservation was larger than modern day Bannock County and extended south to Red Rock Pass and east nearly to Bancroft. The growth of American civilization, especially the building of the railroads, caused two reductions of the reservation, in 1889 and 1902. Redrawn from Union Pacific Railroad map.

Painting in the Union Pacific Depot in Pocatello, painted by Bethel M. Farley in 1943, (picture taken in April, 1996). The view looks south toward Kinport Peak and the Bannock Range in 1878, with the narrow gauge railroad train headed north to Eagle Rock, Monida Pass, and the Montana mines. Chief Pocatello and his band survey the scene on the left, with Mink Creek and Scout Mountain behind them in the distance. The narrow gauge depot was probably a boxcar located, as shown, near the intersection of Jefferson Ave. and Alameda Road. The view is fictionalized as there was never a depot of this size.
