Mountain Home is a high desert community that is a crossroads of the West. Originally a home station on the stage route, it was located 10 miles northeast of its present location and called Rattlesnake Station. It was moved to its present site when the railroad was completed in 1883.
Mountain Home Life
Mountain Home is about 45 minutes east of Boise, across a high chaparral desert where you’ll frequently see antelope. With 11,427 residents, Mountain Home is a friendly, safe community – a place where many still don’t lock their doors. The downtown has shops, a museum, boutiques, restaurants and parks. A short walk away, tidy homes sit in groomed yards beneath shade trees.
Mountain Home Air Force
The town is a close neighbor to the Mountain Home Air Force Base, home of the Air Force’s 366th Tactical Fighter Wing. The Air Force brings people from all over the world to Mountain Home, making it an international community. The base offers a number of community activities, including an annual air show attended by thousands.

If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you.
A text transcript is a text equivalent of audio information that includes spoken words and non-spoken sounds such as sound effects. NAR is working on adding transcripts to all scripted video and audio content.
A caption is transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally rendered visually by being superimposed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio (e.g., when in a crowded room). Most of NAR's video content includes captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.
Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device's volume controls and your media players' volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
