Sloan’s Point Lookout

 The prefabricated Aeromotor cab and tower were erected on Sloan Point in 1934.  In 2000 the lookout was removed from it’s hilltop and given to the Museum where it was stored.  In 2006, twenty-four volunteers and twelve businesses combined their time and resources to reassemble the tower on a site at the Central Idaho Historical Museum.

Two new additions to our site

CCC Statue

 On August 3rd of 2006, a statue commemorating the Civilian Conservation Corps was dedicated.  The Worker, a six foot bronze, now graces the front lawn at the edge of a spruce grove. The project was initiated by the Eier’s and Meyers’, with funding coming from private donations plus a generous grant from the City of McCall.  Our Museum site and structures were built with Civilian Conservation Corps labor, and we are proud to honor all CCC’s, especially those who served in Idaho.

     The Museum has printed brochures that allow you to see the site on your own terms.

 With the exception of the Fire Warden’s House, the Museum buildings and grounds are    generally open to the public.   Our large shaded front lawn provides a comfortable resting spot  from the afternoon sun.  The Forester’s Walk has picnic tables to accommodate folks who enjoy eating their lunches in a peaceful setting.  The site also has  public restrooms (ADA compliant), and a drinking fountain. 

 

Did we mention we have daytime RV parking available?  (sorry, no overnight or dumping

facilities).
