Saturday, September 15, the Historical Society will sponsor a field trip to the Stricker Ranch, TF Canal Co Power house, the large syphon through Rock Creek and Rock Creek Cemetery.
The bus will leave the museum at 10 and Friends of Stricker will host the tours at the site.
Louis Zamora of the Twin Falls Canal Company will show us around the power plant and take us to the site of the famous syphon through Rock Creek.
The larger bus has been reserved and there are seats available. Call us (208 736-4675) to reserve your place or you can follow in your own car. Stricker Ranch is not regularly open this day so you must sign up with us to go on the tour.
Bring your own lunch and be ready for a fun afternoon. We will probably be back at the museum before 4.
Museum Volunteer Patti Hurley set up a display for the museum at the Twin Falls County Fair, which begins next week. Patti has been working on cataloging the numerous hats that have been accumulated over the years here at the museum and the display is a small assortment of various types of millinery work and accessories.
Ron Yates took these photos of the tour at Clarr Tunnel. Brian did a very nice presentation at the museum and later a small group of historical society members was able to get up close and personal with a little local history.
We had a great turnout for Jim Gentry's presentation "Changing Perceptions of the Snake River and Canyon". The museum will be hosting more events like this, so please keep checking this site for more information.
Stop in at the museum Saturday, August 4th, to listen to Jim Gentry discuss "Changing Perceptions of the Snake River and Canyon". Lecture begins at 1 o'clock and we will have time for questions. We have have some seating, but you may want to bring a lawn chair.
