The Bannock County Historical Society is pleased to announce that we have been awarded an Idaho State Historical Records Advisory Board Grant (SHRAB), funded by National Historical Publications and Records Commission in the amount of $2000, for the purpose of creating a more searchable, accurate, and shareable electronic database for our historic photograph collection. 

Grant Award 2023

The Bannock County Historical Society is please to announce that we have been awarded a Community Enhancement Grant from the Idaho State Historical Society for $2000 to revamp and move our Military History Exhibit at the Pocatello Airport.  The changes will make the exhibit more complete and able to be enjoyed by all visitors to the airport, not just those who are cleared to fly.  We are looking forward to this project, which is is being undertaken with the support of this grant and the Pocatello Airport staff.
