I lived here 50 years ago when "Downtown" was the heart of Pocatello... the mall in Chubbuck flat out killed it and left the classic historic buildings in this railroad town abandoned (not a slum, just bare) There are a core of people who are working very hard to bring this area back to life. Flowering trees in the spring,... More

I like to envision what this old town once looked like and dream of what it might become. For the time being it is in limbo and in desperate need of an injection of creativity and customers! If people who live here want to see it grow they need to make the extra effort to get the things they can... More

It is a run down shady area. You feel like you need to watch your back in this part of town. Stick to the east side or Chubbuck.

Their Old Town area is right on the brink if being revitalized. Worth a walk, really nice merchants, and great potential.

There has been some attempt to revive the old centre and it is intersting to see old buildings and adverts painted on the walls but we visited it at 10.30 in the morning and nothing was open although the shops looked interesting and off beat.

Pocatello's artistic scene is bringing Old Town alive. Friday night art walks feature local artists, and there are many of them. There are is also the annual Rocky Mountain Writers' Festival, which takes place in April, and will celebrate its 25th year in 2015. It goes on for almost a week and includes local talent as well as authors from... More

Well, I'm living here almost 4 years. This is a college town, a small and dying city, what to expect? I have been in many old town but, this one gets my petty because of it's poor condition. Except Christmas time(as streets and shops are decorated with pretty lights and decorations) I don't like this place at all. Super slow,... More

Now Old Town Pocatello is old hence the name being called Old Town Pocatello. I like this location because it does hold a treasure trove of history about the community. Also, my family helped establish it for that reason I like it. Now to me the best time to be there is during the winter. The reason being is that... More
