Welcome To The Boundary County Historical Society

Boundary County Museum Closure – Update July 2020

Boundary County Museum CaribouIt has been roughly five months since the Boundary County Museum has shuttered its doors to the community, due to the Coronavirus. With little time to formulate long-term plans, and no expectation that the shutdown would stretch this long, the Board of Trustees agreed at a recent meeting that in all good faith, considering the health and safety of everyone involved (staff, volunteers, and the public), the doors will remain closed until the current virus threat has subsided.


When in downtown Bonners Ferry, visit the Museum to see original artifacts, period rooms, exhibits, and displays designed to present the history of North Idaho and the indigenous Kootenai people.

“The purpose of the Boundary County Historical Society shall be to bring together persons interested in the history of Boundary County; to promote further interest in the heritage of this area; to gather information, objects, and materials relative to its history and development; and to carry on educational programs concerning this region.
The Society will manage and operate any real or personal property in the form of a public museum.”
