Each year the Idaho State Historic Preservation Office organizes and promotes statewide opportunities for the public to learn about Idaho archaeology, history, and historic preservation. The Idaho Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month program is a celebration of everything dealing with Idaho’s archaeology and history. Events, presentations, and programs have been reaching all corners of the state for over 30 years! Please join us in the celebration by attending one of our sponsored events.
In 2021, the Idaho State Historical Society Celebrates 140 Years of Service to the State.
Historic properties are a lasting legacy of the Idahoans who built our state. The vision and perseverance of those who came before us are reflected in the tangible remnants of what they left behind. The ISHS stewards 61 buildings and maintains 600 acres of land throughout the state, ensuring that irreplaceable historic properties are preserved and maintained for future generations of Idahoans.
The health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers is of the highest priority. As such, in an effort to be proactive and help prevent the spread of the virus in our community, all public programming and events of the Idaho State Historical Society and the Idaho State Historic Preservation Office are currently canceled or postponed until further notice. This decision by state and agency leadership includes the 2021 recognition of Idaho Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month (IAHPM).
