Product Details
  • When we moved to Ketchum in 2013 and the shop was still a distant dream, we spent a lot of time listening to stories and reading about the history of the area; we wanted to know about this place we now called home. The Alpine holds a rich historic history as a tolerated (illegal) casino, and a place where Hemingway frequented. As the first in a historic series, our hope is that through these T-shirts a part of the history is remembered, shared and celebrated.

    Series I Historic Ketchum T-Shirts by Independent Goods

    Ketchum, Idaho
    1930s-1970s
    Ketchum, Idaho, was officially founded in 1880. As any town in America, it has transformed itself over the decades, once the largest sheep ranching area in the USA, now a beloved ski and summer recreation area. The Alpine Club was located in the heart of town on Main Street, where Whiskey Jacques now stands. A gathering place for many including Ernest Hemingway. Mary Hemingway described the place as “very fun and gay,” and reported where Hemingway had his first steak in Ketchum for .85 cents. The T-shirts are a celebration of the history and memories of yesteryear, with the hope that the history is preserved.
