The City Of Emmett. For Family.

Just over the foothills north of the Treasure Valley lies beautiful Emmett, Idaho. At the base of Squaw Butte with the Payette River flowing through it, Emmett has abundant recreational opportunities year-round and yet is a throwback to simpler times. It is an unabashedly small town with everything you need tucked within the valley. There are good restaurants, a great hospital, good schools and most of all, friendly people.

Living in Emmett allows your children the freedom of walking and biking to schools and parks. It is a safe and ideal place for raising kids. The weather is mild and shopping or entertainment is within a 20-minute drive.

Living In Emmett

Emmett, The Broad Strokes.

Numerous events throughout the year celebrate the inherent beauty of our local area, with the Emmett Cherry Festival and Harvest Festival and Street Fair serving to highlight the agricultural activity that occurs across Gem County.











The small town feel of our local communities resonates throughout the businesses and residents who make Gem County truly special. Don’t let our small size fool you, however. Our close proximity to Boise and convenient position on the banks of the Payette River has helped make Gem County a veritable agricultural powerhouse at the very heart of Idaho.

Post Office To Thriving Town

The History Of Emmett.

Permanent settlement began in the early 1860s, after gold discoveries in the Boise Basin brought people over the established stage and pack train routes. Two of these trails joined at the Payette River north of the present river bridge in Emmett.


Originally called “Emmettville,” it was primarily a post office named after Emmett Cahalan, the son of Tom Cahalan, an early settler of the area. The post office was later moved but retained the name. A few years later the “ville” was dropped and the post office and town became simply Emmett.
