Moscow is located in northern Idaho, nestled between Moscow mountain and the beautiful undulating hills of the Palouse. With a small town friendliness and safety, Moscow is also a great location for higher education, being home to the University of Idaho and with Washington State University just across the state line.

Moscow is the "Heart of the Arts"--with the annual Jazz Festival, live music on the town, the Rendezvous in the Park, and summer theatre.

Moscow is also a great place for those who love the outdoors. Camping, mountain biking, snow mobiling, fishing and skiing abound, with some of the best big game and upland game hunting in the world located nearby.

After settlers arrived in 1871, the town became know as "Paradise Valley". In 1877, Samuel Neff filed for a postal permit under the name of Moscow because the area reminded him of his home town of Moscow, Pennsylvania.

In 1875, the city's first store was opened on what is now Main Street. Moscow grew with the arrival of the railroad in 1885. The town became incorporated in 1887 and was later chosen as the site for a land-grant institution, the University of Idaho. Idaho achieved statehood in 1890.
