Pocatello Historic Preservation Comm. to Host “Twilight at Brady Chapel” Fundraiser

Brady Chapel Pocatello

The Pocatello Historic Preservation Commission is inviting the public to a spooky look at one of the city’s iconic chapels. Friday, October 14 from 6 p.m.to 8 p.m. the committee will host a fundraiser to help benefit restoration efforts for Brady Chapel. During the event, attendees will get a chance to hear about the history of the nearly 100-year-old building, find out about what repairs are in store, and hear what the future holds for the structure. “It’s the commission’s hope that it can be opened to the public more than just Memorial Day each year,” said Terri Neu, Staff Liaison for the Pocatello Historic Preservation Commission. “Brady Chapel is a significant piece of Pocatello’s history and everyone should have the opportunity to see its beauty inside and out.” The sanctuary was dedicated in 1922 and the chapel gets its namesake from the Brady family. The clan built the shrine in honor of James Brady who served as Idaho’s Governor from 1908 to 1911 and as a United States Senator from 1913 until his death in 1918. Also on tap for the event is a self-guided tour, which also includes an optional scavenger hunt. Those looking to take part in the hunt are asked to bring their own flashlight and camera to participate in the scavenger hunt portion of the tour. Four randomly selected scavenger hunt winners will receive a $5 gift certificate from Tastee Treet to be redeemed that evening. Donations will be accepted at the event and the first 100 donors will receive a free small ice cream cone from Tastee Treet. Those who are unable to attend but are interested in donating to the restoration effort can contact Terri Neu at 234-6500.
