A little bit of Donnelly History

Donnelly is the youngest town in Valley County, founded in 1914. The land was donated by Colonel Dewey, named after the Colonel’s long-time friend, Mr. Patrick Donnelly.

The town was founded two years after the establishment of a railroad depot on the railroad line running from Emmett to Mccall, following the railroad depot establishment the little town of Roseberry started to make a decline so, many of the old Roseberry building were moved to Donnelly via steam tractors and horse teams. You can still find some of Donnelly’s original buildings still standing today, along Main St. (HW 55)
