- Bisbee Photography
Clarence Bisbee was hired to come to Twin Falls to take promotional photographs of the area to inspire other to settle here. Bisbee photographs are plentiful and a great documentary tool for the area. The museum houses his camera, case and tripod and we have a digital display showing the home life of Mr. Bisbee.
