Caldwell History

Hundreds of Chinese immigrants settled in Caldwell in the 1870s and 1880s. This town was central during the anti-Chinese backlash in Idaho, which resulted in an 1886 Anti - Chinese League convention in Boise. Owing to violence and social pressures, all immigrants were driven out of the town by 1890. In March 1908, Albert Horsley pleaded guilty in the District Court in Caldwell for the assassination of Frank Steunenberg, the former governor of Idaho.
