Noah Kellogg entered the area in 1885, was a carpenter and prospector in 1885. While Kellogg was out looking for his lost burro, he spotted a large outcropping of galena (lead ore) shining in the sunlight. It was his discovery that eventually led to the creation of the great Bunker Hill and Sullivan mines, which made the town flourish. Kellogg is part of Idaho's Silver Valley, named for the area's rich silver deposits first found in the early 1880s. Bunker Hill ceased operations about 20 years ago, but visitors can still learn about the Silver Valley's mining history at the Staff House Museum on McKinley Avenue. Mining equipment of all shapes and sizes is on display, as well as extensive metallurgical and mineral exhibits.
