Welcome to St. Maries, Idaho!

This quiet town is situated in a beautiful, timbered valley which includes two major rivers and a multitude of lakes.

St. Maries, which is located about two-and-a-half hours from the Canadian border, is the county seat of Benewah County and has a population of about 2800. It is the retail center for eastern Benewah County and enjoys a trade-area population of about 8,500.

The local economy is driven by the timber industry complemented by some mining operations and a solid base of farming. The remarkable beauty of the area combined with the exceptional quality of life has spawned a considerable retirement community in the area.

The Greater St. Joe Development Foundation, a local group dedicated to economic progress, publishes and hosts these pages to introduce St. Maries to whomever seeks to find it. And the St. Maries Chamber of Commerce invites you to stop by the next time you’re passing through … or, better yet, make it a point to pass through.

We hope you find everything you need, and enjoy the view!
