Documentation in Many Forms

We collect material pertaining to the history of the Upper Snake River Plain. Due to our location and cultural connection to the history of the area, we are in an excellent position to document the significance of this region. Documentation comes in many formats, including memoirs, personal papers, letters, journals and diaries, scrapbooks, oral histories, and photographs. The period involved extends primarily from the late 18th century through the present, with other periods acquired as we are able.


Search our holdings through our finding aids or explore our current digital offerings. While only a small portion of our collection is available digitally, we will add to it over time.
