This Museum sitting on four acres in the heart of McCall has seven structures built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1937 for the Southern Idaho Timber Protective Association. The log buildings served as a headquarters and were intended to showcase the skills of the local Finnish carpenters. The Central Idaho Historical Museum is dedicated to displaying and interpreting the history of central Idaho. Featuring the eight historic buildings this unique site served as the summer home for the Governor and was the headquarters for the Timber Protective Association from 1938-1992. It now provides a place for cultural and educational presentations and houses a regional museum and historical research archive focusing on prehistoric and historic use of resources such as mining, logging, recreation, fire suppression, and forest management. The Central Idaho Cultural Center and Museum is located at 1001 State Street in McCall.
