Nampa's founders wanted their town to be a haven of piety, refusing to sell plots to anyone who was planning on building a saloon or gambling hall, earning Nampa the nickname "New Jerusalem". The default prohibition would not last long though; the town would end up with three saloons before it even had a church.
This tour examines the dark side of New Jerusalem, the gunslingers, and ghosts. The side that no one wants to talk about; murders, deadly fires, and prostitution. You will learn a little about how the town developed, and a lot about the terrible things that were happening as the city was growing into the Nampa we know today.
