Minidoka County Historical Society
MCHS is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving Minidoka County history. Your donations keep us open.
The museum is home to the original Rupert Union Pacific Depot, built in 1906 and relocated to the museum in 1989.
Our research library includes the complete collections of The Rupert Record and The Minidoka County News. These two news publications chronicle Minidoka County's history from 1905 through 2008. Neither is available electronically yet, but with your support these newspapers will be digitized and made available through Rupert's DeMary Library and the Minidoka County Historical Society Museum.
We need volunteers to help with the following projects:
Contact Melissa Alley, secretary, by phone, (208) 436-0336, or email us if you would like to volunteer for one of these projects.
