The city of Smelterville is located 2 miles west of Kellogg and east of Pinehurst. The name was selected in 1929 by a voice vote of its residents due to the presence of mining smelters. The smelter stacks were demolished in 1996. The town is now home to several service businesses. There is a cute drive-through latte shop. The small post office sits in the center of town. There are tire, detail, and auto stores. And there are grocery stores, a couple of manufacturers, and even one big-box discount store.
