We are working on the Historical Society's display in the antiques building of the Twin Falls County Fair. Check it out and let us know what you think.
Twin Falls County Historical Society Museum is hosting a scavenger hunt that will include the county museums in Cassia, Minidoka, Lincoln, Jerome, Gooding, as well as the Hagerman Museum. Hoping to get in touch with Stricker Ranch and Oakley in the next few days. Each museum will create its own list of items on the scavenger hunt and participants will have to get the list from them. Find as many items as you can and save your list to be turned into the Twin Falls Museum at the end date. More specifics will be available in the next week or so and you will be given several weeks to complete the hunt at each museum. Give us a call if you have any ideas or need more info.
Today we received a donation of maps from 1910. The larger is of Washington, Oregon and Idaho with a full index on the back. The smaller is of Twin Falls County showing Township, Range and Section with all the smaller now defunct areas like Amsterdam, Maroa, etc. Many thanks to Ms. Warberg for this donation.
Today is Filer Fun Days and Levi Westphal is driving the museum's fire engine in the parade. The truck is a 1940 Seagraves with a V12 Pierce Arrow engine. Many volunteer hours have been spent getting this truck ready after a long absence in parades. Thanks to all that helped make it happen this year, including Magic Valley Transmission and Auto Repair, Fred Millsap Sr, Fred Millsap Jr., Laurie Warren, Gary Kaufman, Alex Kunkel, Teresa Sept, Andrew Vawser, Steve Westphal, Doug Lincoln, Jarred Westphal and Kudos to Levi for braving the weather and lack of power steering in the fire truck. Now we have to raise some $$$$ for tires! Levi will drive it in Sagebrush Days in Buhl on July 4 and at Kimberly Good Neighbor Days July 8.

Alex Kunkel said there was a swinging walkway over the canal by the spillway. I think I'll pass on crossing there.
