Rock Creek Station and Stricker Homesite Ribbon Cutting!
Join the Idaho State Historical Society and Friends of Stricker in celebrating the unveiling of the latest historic preservation project, engaging historical interpretation, and educational experience pavilion at Rock Creek Station and Stricker Homesite in Hansen! Through generous support by the Janice Seagraves Family Foundation, Maurice Bowers Charitable Trust, and the Grace Smith Keveren and Kenneth A. Keveren Foundation, the site now features stunning outside interpretation for self-guided tours and a pavilion to accommodate educational tours for school children and learners of all ages. The Rock Creek Station was the largest stage station between Fort Hall and Fort Boise. The Station served as a post office, polling place, and supply post for emigrants traveling west. The site and exhibits provide essential historical context and help visitors imagine and experience the heyday of wagons, oxen, and horses in southwest Idaho. In addition, the Idaho State Historical Society secured state funding through the Department of Public Works Permanent Building Fund Advisory Committee to stabilize and restore the Wet and Dry Cellars, Rock Creek Store, and the Stricker family home.
Join us Saturday, June 5 for the unveiling, remarks from Idaho Governor Brad Little, music, refreshments, and self-guided tours of all the new site updates!
This event is free and open to the public.
