Come travel around Idaho with us!
“The mountains of Idaho, poems of geology stretching beyond any boundaries and seemingly even beyond the world.”
– Norman Maclean
Historic places offer a unique connection to our cultural heritage. They help define our identity both as Idahoans and as members of our individual communities. They enrich our daily lives with their craftsmanship, beauty, and associated stories. They help us understand, experience, and learn from our past, as we try and build a better future. We invite you to help keep our past alive by discovering and learning more about the history that surrounds us.
Use our interactive map to help plan your next adventure or uncover some historic places hiding in your own backyard. You can enter a specific address, town, or county to filter the map, as well as filtering by project type using the dropdown menu below the search bar. Click on any of the location pins to view a brief description, get driving directions, or view more details about the place’s history, managing organization, and their restoration efforts.
Below the map is a complete list of historic places we have helped fund, which may be filtered by region, county, or town. You can also use the search bar to find a specific place, or you may search by keywords like ‘Museum’, ‘Archaeology’, or ‘Courthouse’ to see a list of those types of sites.
