Buhl was founded on April 17, 1906. It was named for Frank H. Buhl of Sharon, Pennsylvania, a major investor in a Carey Act project known as the Twin Falls South Side project, which introduced large-scale irrigation to the Magic Valley in the early 20th Century.

Buhl is a city located on the old Oregon Trail in the western half of Twin Falls County in Idaho. The population was 4,122 at the 2010 census, up from 3,985 in 2000. 

US Highway 30 passes through Buhl, along the scenic Thousand Springs Scenic Byway from Twin Falls to Bliss, Idaho. Known as the “Trout Capital of the World,” Buhl boasts numerous hatcheries in the immediate surrounding area, which produce a majority of the rainbow consumed in the United States.  Clear Springs Foods, located just north of Buhl, processes over 20 million pounds of rainbow trout each year, making it the world’s largest producer.
