Dry Creek Historical Society

WELCOME TO IDAHO’S AGRICULTURAL PAST

Located in the foothills outside downtown Boise, a short 15 minute drive.

The Farmstead forms the core of a homestead built by farmer Phillip  L. Schick in the Dry Creek Valley of southwestern Idaho. Schick settled the land in the early 1860s and lived there into the 20th century.

Today, the preserved Farmstead site covers 2 acres along Dry Creek, with seven historic farm buildings: the farmhouse, a detached kitchen and wellhouse (called the Red House), a root cellar, a wood shed, a saddle shed, a granary and a horse barn.

The historic site was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2006 for its regional significance as an outstanding example of early homesteading in Idaho, and 19th & 20th century agriculture in the West.

Dry Creek Historical Society, Inc. is an Idaho 501c3 charitable nonprofit organization established to preserve the rural agricultural heritage of the Dry Creek Valley, Idaho.
