If you haven’t had a chance to explore the Bonner County Historical Society and Museum, or you’re overdue for a visit, now’s the perfect opportunity to spend a Saturday exploring our area’s history. Every first Saturday of the month, the museum is free to the public. From 10am to 2pm, visitors can explore all of the indoor exhibits during the Free First Saturdays event. The museum’s current special exhibit is The Women Who Shaped Bonner County. While you’re visiting, keep an eye out for favorite exhibits from the permanent collection, including The Early Years, which includes a reproduction of a sturgeon-nose canoe, and the Dig Room, featuring a sample of 600,000 artifacts discovered by the University of Idaho’s archaeological dig that took place during the construction of the bypass. Masks and hand sanitization is currently required for all visitors. To learn more about the museum, visit BonnerCountyHistory.org.
