For a number of years after the founding of Franklin and Richmond in 1860 the tract of country lying between Bear River and Cub River was utilized as a grazing country and used as such by the people of these settlements. The first effort to found a settlement in that locality proved unsuccessful through the failure of bring water for irrigation upon some 25,000 acres of land which was surveyed, but a second attempt, made in 1870, proved successful, when water for irrigation purpose was brought in from Worm Creek and later, also, through a long canal, tapping Cub River. The locality was, in the beginning, referred to as “Starvation Corner,” “Poverty Flat,” Hardscrabble” and other such names, but Lewiston finally became one of the best grain-growing districts in the Valleys of the Rocky Mountains. The raising of sugar beets and potatoes is one of the chief industries. The total population of the Lewiston Precinct was 1,783 in 1930.
