Listed on the National Register of Historic Places


  The Museum sits on four acres in the heart of McCall.  It  consists of seven structures built by the Civilian Conservation Corps   in 1937 for the Southern Idaho Timber Protective Association (SITPA).  The log buildings served as a headquarters and were   intended to showcase the skills of the local Finnish carpenters who supervised it’s construction.


 In 1990 when SITPA moved, the State of Idaho deeded the property to the City of McCall.  A Board of Directors is responsible for the site, now known as the Central Idaho Historical Museum.
