We are about to begin digitizing the Newspapers, 1905-1921, and the volumes 1986-1989. We received a $3,000.00 Grant from the State Historical Records Advisory Board and a $6,600.00 donation from the Rupert DeMary Library, which means that we have approximately $15,000.00 to get this project underway. United Electric published a wonderful article about this project featuring Gary Schorzman here: www.unitedelectric.coop/sites/unitedelectric/files/PDF/Ruralite/2016Jun.pdf

The Minidoka County Historical Society May program is canceled.

Instead, this year, we invite you to join us for Live Idaho History Days: May 19th and 20th, fourth graders from Rupert, Paul, and Raft River, will spend a day at the museum learning about Pioneer Life. As much as possible, students will have the opportunity to experience hands-on activities. You are welcome to join us! We need volunteers to help our pioneers-in-training get from station to station, complete activities, and enjoy a capstone moment of their studies in Idaho History. For more information or to volunteer, please call Ginger at the Minidoka County Historical Society Museum, 436-0336.

At the Minidoka County Historical Society Museum:

Learn about the Oregon Trail alternate routes north of the Snake River. Some discoveries suggest at least one route traveled near what is now Lake Walcott. Dr. Suzann Henrikson, field archeologist with the Bureau of Land Management, will explain where the settlers crossed the Snake River and why there is renewed interest in finding evidence of the pioneers who braved the dusty Central-Idaho desert.
