A tour of mountain homes and historic building in the Idaho City area – a fundraiser for Mountain Kids Day Camp.


Join your friends and neighbors to help a good cause and enjoy a great outing visiting eight interesting unique private homes and two historic buildings, in the beautiful Idaho City area. Visit inside The Brogan House, built in 1902, and step back in time. Take a rare look in Trudy Jackson’s (of World Famous Trudy’s Kitchen) cozy cabin up on a hill overlooking Idaho City. An artist’s studio with lots of sunny windows is a highlight, as is a beautiful view home built by the skilled craftsman homeowner himself – a real work of art! The historic buildings this year include the Boise Basin Museum, 1867, which was once a Post Office, and the Masonic Lodge #1, 1865, which is rarely open to the public, but so interesting to see.  Moving at your own pace, enjoy this self-guided driving tour; the roads are easy, the locations well-marked.


This is a fundraiser for Mountain Kids Day Camp, a faith-based camp where all 77 kids attended camp at no charge.


The Idaho City Senior Center serves as Tour Headquarters; tickets will be exchanged for a brochure/map and a potato bar lunch will be served for only $5. Presale tickets available online for $10 and at the Idaho City Visitors Center. Tickets on the day of the event are $15, (cash and checks only) at the Senior Center.


The Senior Center will provide a potato bar lunch for $5, and dessert for $3.
