The Canyon County Historical Society is the primary source for preserving all of Canyon County's rich history

Preservation Through the generosity of former and current residents of Canyon County, we are able to preserve artifacts from our history. Many donations come in almost daily, and each one has a story to tell.


Interpretation Through various exhibits, which are changed throughout the year, we are able to make the past alive for our visitors. Tour guides are available daily to take you on a journey in time.

Education Through special group and general tours, we are able to educate our visitors about the way we lived, played, worked, and functioned as a society.

Our Mission

The purpose of this Society shall be to help investigate and preserve for future generations any kind of historical records, documents, sites, buildings, articles and artifacts, pertaining to Canyon County and to promote interest and concern for Canyon County history.
