Additional Information

As a permanent legacy of Idaho's territorial sesquicentennial, ISHS will build a one-of-a-kind exhibition emphasizing and celebrating the Lincoln connection to Idaho. The 1,200 square-foot exhibit will create a unique Abraham Lincoln education resource where everyone, including students, family historians, and educators, can learn about Abraham Lincoln's impact on the creation of Idaho Territory, his impact on the development of the Rocky Mountain west, and the US history of that era.

The exhibition's core is the Lincoln Legacy collection, recently donated by David and Nancy Leroy. The collection is arguably the most significant grouping of contemporary artifacts ever assembled relating to the relationship of Abraham Lincoln and the Rocky Mountain West.  No institution, public or private, national or regional, can duplicate the 1,500 tangible objects, books, letters, photographs, publications, cartoons, relics, paintings, statuary, campaign mementos, association pieces and Lincoln family items now part of the collection of the Idaho State Archives.
