Creating and Conserving the Constitution Traveling Exhibition-Coeur d’Alene
Join the Idaho State Historical Society (ISHS) and Idaho constitution experts and ISHS board of trustees members Don Pischner and Ernie Hoidal, for the opening of Creating and Conserving the Constitution, an exhibit which explores the Idaho State Archives’ work in partnership with the Preservation Lab at the University of Utah’s J. Willard Marriott Library. Panelists will discuss the multi-year conservation effort and the history of Idaho’s Constitutional Convention during the summer of 1889. Learn about the delegates from Alturas County who contributed and debated ideas to be drafted into the constitution and discover how you can access this vital piece of Idaho history and many others in your own home.
This is a free public program at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library. The program will begin at 6pm and attendees are invited to tour the exhibition and view a replica of Idaho’s original constitution afterwards. Creating and Conserving the Constitution will be on display from July 14-August 26.
