The City of Buhl is a town of 4200 nestled in South Central Idaho along the Thousands Springs Scenic Byway. Buhl is approximately 16 miles west of the City of Twin Falls on Highway 30. It was founded on April 17, 1906 and named after Frank H. Buhl of Sharon, Pennsylvania, a major investor in the Carey Act project. This project introduced large-scale irrigation to the Magic Valley in the early 20th Century.
