History

When the Minidoka-Wells branch of the Oregon Short Line Railroad was constructed in1905, Burley becomes an important station and junction of other branch lines. A town site was surveyed in May, 1905, and one of the first to locate there was George Cook, who established a restaurant at Burley. Its location, next to the river in the shadows of the mountains, has been a strategic place for centuries. It is home to the Oregon and California Trails along with more than thirty other pioneer trails. The total population of the Burley precincts was 4,754 in 1930.
