One of the earliest settlers of the area was Thomas Hugh Aikens. He was pivotal in having the county build a bridge across the Boise River, which anchored his two properties; Eagle Island and directly across Valley Road (now State Street). The bridge boosted the economy in Eagle, which led to many new developments.
Downtown Eagle saw great expansion with the introduction of the interurban trolley, which starting running down Valley Road in August of 1907. The trolley was in full use by 1915, which connected Eagle to all cities and towns in the valley via the “Boise Valley Loop”. The trolley was used by commuters, freight movers and day tourists. The popularity of the automobile led to the demise of the area trolley in 1928.
For over a century Eagle’s roots have been firmly planted in agriculture. Many of today’s larger planned communities were first family farms. Many of the farms boomed during the gold rush in the late 1800s and again post World War II. The farming history of this community can still be seen today, from the several active farms in the area to the architectural design elements of the city and neighborhoods.
