Traveling state Capitol
POST FALLS - In honor of the state Capitol reopening, a traveling exhibition called "Our Historic Gem - Idaho's State Capitol" will be presented in Post Falls at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 6, at City Hall, 408 N. Spokane St.
The free exhibition will explore statehouse history, architecture and artifacts through lectures and slide presentations.
A companion photo exhibit, "Idaho's Historic Gems - Past and Present Public Buildings Throughout Our State," will also be on display. Fifty digital photo entries were submitted by high school and college students statewide, representing significant historic public buildings.
The event is part of Idaho State Historical Society, Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month.
"Once again, the people of Idaho have benefitted from preserving a piece of Idaho's history - the state Capitol building," said Mary Anne Davis, coordinator of Idaho Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month. "We hope that this one project will show that historical and archaeological sites are important to protect for future generations. The topics presented at events in May showcase our diverse history and will hopefully inspire participants to love and respect Idaho's history and archaeology."
