Horseshoe Bend History
An enriched rural city, for a short time known as Warrineserville, exploded in 1862 with gold miners’ seeking their fortunes. When the gold ran dry it became a prosperous ranching community and then a large logging trade town. Founded in 1867 it derives its name from a fertile U-shaped peninsula carved by the scenic flow of the Payette River.
Since those days, Horseshoe Bend has become an attractive community for affordable living for those looking to enjoy a more relaxed pace in life and affords fast easy access to public lands and rivers for recreation. If you're looking for some elbow room to live then it is only a short drive from Boise.

A text transcript is a text equivalent of audio information that includes spoken words and non-spoken sounds such as sound effects. NAR is working on adding transcripts to all scripted video and audio content.
A caption is transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally rendered visually by being superimposed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio (e.g., when in a crowded room). Most of NAR's video content includes captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.
