The Historic 1313 Club

The 1313 Club is home to some of the best food in Historic Wallace, Idaho. Our historic bar and restaurant offers a unique food selection in a great setting located in downtown Historic Wallace, Idaho. The most commonly asked question is "How did the 1313 Club get its name?" There are a couple of different stories, the most popular is the fact that the original bar area was 13 feet high by 13 feet wide. The other story is that when they opened there were already 12 bars and 12 brothels going in Wallace - making us the 13 13! Pick the story you like best. The 1313 Club resides in the Heller Building. This two-story brick building has two store fronts joined on the first floor. The cast iron pilasters remain today. The second story retains its segmentally arched windows. The Heller Building has housed a hotel upstairs, a bus depot, a barbershop and a cafe since it was rebuilt in 1891. Come visit us to see how this old building is holding up today!

Silver Capital of the World

The historic mining town of Wallace (population 960) is nestled in the Bitterroot range of the Rocky Mountains. It has long been famous as the "Silver Capital of the World," with over 1.1 billion ounces of silver produced since 1884. Wallace is also known for the fact that every downtown building is on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2002, the readers of the Boise Weekly voted Wallace to be the "Best City in Idaho ." In 2003, Wallace was ranked 24 in a list of the top 30 places in the nation where prospective second-home purchasers could find the best value for their money. In 2004, the Mayor joined with jubilant delegates to Silver Summit 2004 to proclaim Wallace as the Center of the Universe.
