Lane Mercantile Historic Site
Main Street & Sun Valley Road, Ketchum
Enoteca restaurant is now located in the Lane Mercantile building. It is the historic site of the sheepmen's gathering place for years. It was there that lamb prices, the weather and other important topics of conversation were debated during the time that millions of sheep trailed through the Valley in the early 1900s. It was during this time that Ketchum became the largest sheep shipping center in the world next to Sydney, Australia. Be sure to check the original sign on the back of the building. "Eat more lamb. It's delicious!"
