Twin Falls is located in the south-central part of the state of Idaho and a city and seat of Twin Falls County. It sits nearby Shoshone Falls and Auger Falls of the Snake River, which is adjacent to a canyon with a spectacular view and that also bisects the arid, broad river plains. In 1904, the area was first developed and grew almost overnight with the establishment of the irrigation and a branch of the Union Pacific railway. The area has been primarily concentrating on trading, agriculture, and supply centers for the longest time. And with the industrial development, it included hosiery, plastics, and farm-machinery manufacturing. The relocation of the Japanese-Americans camp was established in the northern part of Twin Falls during World War II. The city’s growth was then spurred in the 1990s in part by the high-tech industry.
