The Bingham County Historical Society is dedicated to the preservation of the history of Bingham County and surrounding areas. Currently there are thousands of pictures and historical items either on display or being
organized at the BCHS gallery at 3 N.W. Main in Blackfoot, Idaho.
Come by and visit us:
3 NW Main Street
Blackfoot, Idaho 83221
Office: (208) 785-9906
Summer Hours of Operation:
Wednesday, Thursday &
12:00 to 5:00 p.m.
The goal of the BCHS is to eventually have all the items entrusted to us
cataloged, digitized and available for the public on our web-site.
Our staff and Board of Directors are all unpaid volunteers who serve
because of their passion for preserving the history of Bingham County.
The future projects that we are able to complete are all dependent on the
revenue we are able to raise. We have various books and pictures that
can be purchased at the Gallery and we have periodic fundraisers
to help reach our goals.
The "Gallery" is open to the public and we invite all to come and get acquainted with our staff and get "into" the past of
our great county. For more information on membership or
help after hours call:
785-9906 or 785-3316
