The Union School building is main exhibit area of the museum with the outside buildings housing addional displays.
The improved display area houses the 1940 Seagraves fire truck donated by the city of Twin Falls. We are now able to drive the truck in local parades and other events. In 2017 we were able to complete improvements to this by through grants and private funding. Many thanks to those that made this possible.
The building is also home to a steam tractor donated by Ed Vogel, various wagons, signs, furniture and office equipment donated throughout the years. Filer Mutual Telephone Company donated a box style telephone booth and pay telephones that are also in this space.
