Easterners, who were later followed by Mormons, founded Hamer. The town draws its name from Illinois native, Colonel Thomas R. Hamer. Hamer moved to Idaho in 1893, later served as an Idaho legislator, and served in Congress from 1909 to 1911. The area’s earliest Mormon settlers were responsible for establishing an artesian well irrigation system and successfully developed the local grain and hay industry.
