Local History

We collect material pertaining to the history of the Upper Snake River Plain. Due to our location and cultural connection to the history of the area, we are in an excellent position to document the significance of this region. Documentation comes in many formats, including memoirs, personal papers, letters, journals and diaries, scrapbooks, oral histories, and photographs. The period involved extends primarily from the late 18th century through the present, with other moments acquired as we are able.
