Black History in Idaho Mar 07, 2010
The museum is a quaint little building that once served as a church. It was converted sometime around 1995 into what is now the only Black History Museum in the Pacific Northwest.

What I liked about this place was that they focused the meat of their exhibit on experiences local to the region. The very informative and highly compassionate volunteer wanted to stress that parts of the exhibit was meant to teach what is left out of the history books.

I say BRAVO! so much local history is often overlooked.

and I can say that I learned plenty before I left!

Other points of interest inside the museum are the Stain glass windows that I was told are original to the building and may have been ordered from a sears catalog a century ago...

There is also a collection of books, novels to textbooks, for visitors to sit and read through and a couple of paintings donated by a local Iraqi Veteran with a passion for human rights!

Worth a visit. Its free!!
