Note to Society Members, this event is being held in place of our usual monthly meeting. 

The Bannock County Historical Society is celebrating our 95th Anniversary with an evening filled with history, music and great people! In order to celebrate these 95 years we would love for you all to dress in your favorite historical time starting in 1834, the year Nathaniel Wyeth first came to the area. There will be prizes for the top 3 costumes! 

There will be food, behind the scenes tours, a raffle, and a silent auction to help us raise money for our future expansion plans! We are happy to share that Snake River New Horizons Band will be performing and Hugh Suenaga (the person behind our original donor wall concept) will be our speaker!  

Raffle prizes include a queen sized handmade 6 star design quilt donated by Ethel Girrard, and 1993 Infinity J30 donated by R & J Auto Sales.  The car will be on site starting September 6th.  Tickets for either can be purchased via Pay Pal on the website's home page.  You need not be present to win, but will need to claim in person for the car to sign paperwork.  Tax and title are the responsibility of the winner. 

Please join us for a great night of celebration at our beloved Museum. Help us make the next 95 years of history thrive!
