Glimpse a Part of Idaho’s Past at Twin Falls Visitor Center (PHOTOS)
If you haven’t been to the new Twin Falls Visitor Center that opened early last year, you’re missing out on some interesting exhibits – such as an old stage coach, which seems to be the centerpiece of the facility; photos and informational displays of local history; and a traveling exhibit by Idaho Power.
A grand opening for this last exhibit, which highlights Idaho Power’s past 100 years in the state, will be held 5-7 p.m. March 8. But you don’t have to wait until then to see it.
To whet your appetite, here are a few photos. The slideshow doesn’t do it justice, however, because visiting in person and reading the descriptive displays is part of the fun. The exhibit will be here until May, before moving on to five additional stops in the state.
I know what you’re thinking: boring!
Learning about a company’s history may at first seem that way, but I enjoyed this one and learned some things I didn’t know about Idaho history. Personally, I liked the display that showcased the different sizes of light bulbs and cables the company has used over the years.
While at the Visitor Center, don’t forget to check out the other exhibits. That stagecoach is pretty cool. For more information about the center, call 733-3974.
