Last week’s photo was of a building that was located on the southwest corner of First and Kootenai. It was built in 1894 as a school. It would later become the West Hotel, then the Idaho Hotel. It was bought by the county, to be used as the courthouse in 1915. When the building was torn down in the early 1940s, the lumber was used to build barns in Paradise Valley. Do you own one of those barns?

If you missed it and would like to listen to the stories told by those who were there, they will be playing at the museum for the next two weeks. Sept. 2, this Saturday, is First Free Saturday, so it would be a great time to come down for a visit. See you soon!
