The site was not considered a town until 1919 when its streets and lots were surveyed and recorded.A 2003 memoir by John Rember, Traplines: Coming Home to the Sawtooth Valley describes life in Stanley and its surrounding area, and the cultural changes connected to the establishment of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area.GeographyStanley is located at , at an elevation of 6,253 feet above sea level.According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 0.62sqmi, of which, 0.61sqmi is land and 0.01sqmi is water.
