Have you ever wondered who used to live in the Dry Creek Valley hills, or what it was like here in the “Wild West” days? Your membership in the Dry Creek Historical Society includes private hikes through the Dry Creek Valley hills, across private land and into areas where you can learn about our history. Our current hikes are the Glenn/Masters Homestead, Chukkar Butte & The Frog Ponds, Coyote Mountain Loop, and Upper Dry Creek. Each of those hikes is held several times in the spring and fall.
Front Porch Concerts
Come out and enjoy music on the front porch of the Schick-Ostolasa Farmstead. We host 3-4 concerts during the spring and fall. There is a variety of music styles and we encourage you to bring a picnic. Entry is $5 per person but DCHS members get in free!
Old Time Farm Day
We celebrate Idaho’s farming past each fall with a harvest festival like no other! Old Time Farm Day features many children’s activities, demonstrations of 1860s life, live music, great food, lawn games, displays, tours of the Farmstead, and a performance of historical characters from the Farmstead’s history. This day of fun for the whole family also helps support the work of the DCHS is maintaining and restoring the historic buildings at the Farmstead.
Be brave and tour our Haunted Farmstead! The details and scenes are amazing and some are based on our history.
