The County Treasures Tour is over -

     This was a well-attended tour of historic structures In Bonneville County

     Linden Bateman guided a tour of the Idaho Falls Presbyterian Church and explained unique features about this structure.

     The tour then proceeded to the O. E. Bell Building, where Roy Reynolds provided a narrative about his paintings of historic Idaho Falls, which are featured in the O. E. Bell Building.

     The rest of the Historic Structures in Bonneville County Tour was self-guided. A printed guide and map provided information and directions for the rest of the tour.

     You may download PDF copies of the Tour Guide and Tour Map that were available.
