Zip Code USA-83843- Moscow, Idaho

Idaho is one of eight or nine American states that I've never been to, but I've been fascinated with the college town of Moscow, Idaho, since it was featured on NBC's "Real People" when I was a child circa 1980.

Moscow is the home of The University of Idaho, and it is located in the northern tip of the state.

Moscow, Idaho, has a city population of 23,223 and it actually sits in the Pacific Time Zone.

83843 is also the birth place of the singer Josh Ritter.

Nancy Chaney is the mayor of Moscow, Idaho.

And, there is no proof that the city was named after Moscow, Russia.
