"If These Walls Could Talk"

Oldest Structure Search in Bonneville County

As we celebrate Idaho Falls' 150th anniversary, let's find the oldest structures in Bonneville County! Bonneville County Heritage Association is asking you to do some research within your family, neighborhood or somewhere that you are aware of that would qualify as the oldest structure.

Every building has a story and "If These Walls Could Talk" think of what they would say.

There are 2 categories: pre 1900 and 1901 to 1915. These sets of years are then divided up into type of structure: It's great fun to research and find out the stories. We also have research aids for you.

Submissions will be accepted until July 1, 2015. An independent judge will make the selection of the winners.

This project will be a tour on September 12, 2015. Current owners should be prepared for that. People may just drive by or come into the home or public building by permission of owner at the time of the tour.

Read the rules [PDF] - and then submit an entry form [PDF]!
