Central Idaho Historical Museum, McCall

2.3
The CENTRAL IDAHO HISTORICAL MUSEUM, at 1001 State Street, sits on 4 acres and features seven structures built with Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) labor for the Southern Idaho Timber Protective Association (SITPA). The buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The crown jewel of our site is the remarkable Fire Warden's House. This three-story log structure, built in 1937, is a stunning example of "American Rustic" architecture with a Finnish influence. The house's interior woodwork is beautifully crafted and the furnishings are original. To visit the Fire Warden's House is to step back in time.

Our exhibits focus on local and regional subjects: CCC, fire lookouts, the McCall Mill, logging, Smokey the Bear, forestry and area history. The museum is honored to be the State of Idaho's official site for "The Worker", a bronze statue representing the young men of the CCC.

The museum is a self-funded, all volunteer, 501c3 organization, supported by membership, site rentals, donations and grants.
