History of Powell

A Brief History of Powell


Top photo - looking west into Powell along the tracks - 1990.

Powell about 1915. Does this look like the wooly west or what?! It's like something out of High Plains Drifter, or The Unforgiven (yeah, I like Clint Eastwood).

Downtown Powell in the 1940s. The streets are still dirt. Change comes slowly here! If you walk downtown today, everything is more modern, but you would still be able to recognize most of the buildings.
