Things have been coming along for the Historical Society and Museum in the past few years and 2018 has been very successful. Much of the credit goes to the volunteers that have spent hour after hour on projects or museum tours and information. We can't thank them enough for all they do.
We hosted field trips again this year, going to Milner Dam and Recreation Area, Hagerman Fossil Beds, Murtaugh Lake, Clarr Tunnel, and the Stricker area. 2019 field trips are currently being arranged.
The newspapers - Hollister Herald, Kimberly Advertiser, and Filer Record have been taken to Boise for scanning to be made available to the public as part of the services offered by the Historical Society. Many thanks to the Seagraves Family Foundation and others that donated to this project.
There is finally a source of heat working at the museum. For the past several years the roof tops units went usused, but now the propane tank is back and the building is can be open longer through the winter.
In April there was a history day at the museum and we will be doing this again in 2019 as well as more lectures and other events.
Thanks to everyone that donated, participated or visited the museum in 2018.
