Idaho Territorial 150th Anniversary

Conversations hit the road recently and visited with Jackie Alvord, one of the Committee Members of Idaho Territorial 150th Celebration, about what's happening at both the Fort Hall Replica and the Bannock Historical Museum.  In an interesting fact, both organizations were developed at the Centennial Anniversary of the Idaho Territory.

Also, a reprint of The Story of the Fort Hall Indians and Trappers, a new book The Story of Old Fort Hall, CDs by KPVI and Vision 12, and the official 150th Anniversary Pin are all available for purchase at the Replica gift shop.

A new book will soon be available detailing the natural remedies from the Idaho Territory.  Watch for more information on this later.
