South Hill Stairs
Wallace, Shoshone County
- Grant: 2012
Location: South Hill of Wallace, ID 83873
The South Hill Stairs were constructed with timbers and lumber from the local mining company sawmills. For over 100 years, the stairs have provided pedestrian access to and from the many homes that were built into the hillside above Wallace. Although the town has maintained and still uses several sets of stairs, others need restoration.
The South Hill Stairs are a part of the historic character of Wallace and they are deteriorating. If the stairs were not repaired, a significant aspect of the history of Wallace would be lost with them.
Thanks to the non-profit Greater Wallace Community Development Corporation, the stairs are being restored.
