The eastern capitalist Frank Buhl came west from Sharon, Pennsylvania, to Salt Lake City in 1901 to examine a mining property that interested him. On learning it had already been sold, he decided to investigate a proposed irrigation development in southern Idaho, the Twin Falls South Side Project.

I. B. Perrine met Mr. Buhl at the train depot in Shoshone and introduced him to Peter Kimberly and Stanley Milner. Buhl and Kimberly formed the corporation that accomplished the project.

The townsite of Buhl was platted in 1905, and the Twin Falls Investment Co. sold lots at Broadway and Main Street for $1,750 each, in April, 1906. The location qualified as a village two years later; Buhl is now the second-largest town in Twin Falls County.
