This year’s theme is “My Town Idaho
Idaho Day was established a number of years ago by the Idaho Legislature to commemorate the creation of the Idaho Territory by President Abraham Lincoln on March 4, 1863. Idaho Day is designed to inspire Idahoans across the Gem State to celebrate Idaho and its history.
The Boundary County Historical Society & Museum, endeavoring to promote this incredible place we all love to call home, is researching and writing about the past and present towns in our County with photos and bits of information about them.
Over the next weeks, these will be featured in the “Do You Remember” column in the Bonners Ferry Herald, in hopes of illustrating why ‘our towns’ are special to us.
In honor of the first people to call our beautiful valley home, the Kootenai Tribe of Idaho, the first week’s story will be about “Mission Hill” in the February 28th Bonners Ferry Herald. March 7th’s “Do You Remember” column will be on the former town of Meadow Creek.
Some of the other towns that will be featured include: Addie, McArthur, Klockmann, Naples, Porthill . . . .
