The historical town of Eureka is located in an area referred to as the “Tobacco Valley.” It was founded in the 1880’s as settlers moved from Canada and Missoula. Logging was a major source of income for decades. David Thompson who was a famous British Canadian fur trader visited the area in the early 19th century. On the last full weekend in April Eurekans and visitors alike enjoy the Rendezvous Days-Hotrods & Buckskins to commemorate Thompson’s visit. Eureka has outdoor fun and has quaint little shops in this relaxing town. You can also meander over to the Silver Fish Gallery, the Elk Camp Gallery, and then have lunch at the famous Cafe Jax. Don’t forget not to miss the annual Eureka Quilt Show and a fun filled rodeo in July.
