Pocatello, The Gate City
The city of Pocatello, ID was founded in 1889 and is named after a great Shoshone Indian Chief. Just south of the city limits is the Portneuf gap, which gold miners and pioneers traveled through as the west was being settled. This area provided the main economic hub in the area as tracks were laid for the railroad. Today the Portneuf landmark still provides a notable landscape to the area for which many businesses and economic developments derive their names. Among these is the Portneuf Wellness Complex.
The residents of Pocatello and the surrounding area pride themselves on hard work and driving their own success. They know how to work hard and play hard. The geographic area around Pocatello provides opportunities for the outdoor enthusiasts. From American Falls and it’s inviting reservoir to hiking and biking along the many mountain trails to skiing at Pebble Creek to enjoying the natural hot springs in Lava Hot Springs, there really is something to do for just about everyone.
Pocatello is also home to a four year university, Idaho State University. The school is well-known for its contribution to the arts, particularly in theater. As a result, much of the area benefits from a heightened cultural awareness and the artistic contributions of these cultures.
Among the many cultures that contribute to vibrant experience in the area is the Native American culture. With an Indian reservation just to the north there is a large influence from the Native American community and in particular the Shoshone tribe.
With such a rich culture and history there is no wonder Pocatello and its neighboring areas continue to be a thriving hub for many businesses and families that make it their home.
In fact, we at Big Dog TV & Internet call it our home as well, as our corporate offices are located in Chubbuck. We love the opportunities we have to be involved in the communities that we have stores in, but it is an added bonus to call Pocatello our corporate home. If you are a private or business resident of Pocatello or the surrounding area, we would love to be your local services provider for Dish, DirecTV or High Speed Internet, so contact us today. However, if that doesn’t work out we certainly hope you feel welcome.
