ABOUT THE MUSEUM . . .
The Yellow Pine museum made a debut in the little red schoolhouse on “Harmonica weekend” of 2011 (always the first full weekend of August - see YellowPineMusicAndHarmonicaFestival.org).
Since that heady time of arrangement and rearrangement, exciting visitor meet-ups, and future-oriented brainstorming, the Yellow Pine Backcountry Historical Museum, Inc. and this website have come into being. This small group of volunteers welcomes you to our developing effort at providing all interested parties a way to learn about and share the fascinating history of the Central Idaho backcountry.
The museum itself is still open – that is, local residents are available to open it for you or your group on advance notice (and often even on short notice!). We have a schedule of open hours during weekend events in the warmer months of the year. To make an appointment for a YPBHMuseum showing, please contact these usually-on-site people:
Bill & Lorraine McIntosh – president @ yellowpinemuseum.org
Lynn Imel – limel @ ruralnetwork.net
Others currently in town and available to open the museum are listed on a chalkboard on the Museum porch. Feel free to call on us! - we would love to share our project with you.
IS FREE! - Donations are appreciated
