Historic Preservation Comm., ISU History Dept. to Host “Adventures in Idaho” Symposium


Some of the Gem State’s most famous exploits will be the topic of discussion thanks to the Pocatello Historic Preservation Commission and the Idaho State University Department of History.

Saturday, April 29 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the groups will host a symposium titled “Adventures in Idaho.” The talks will focus on a variety of topics from the impact of James Brady and Frank Paradice’s contributions to the Gate City, to the Pocatellans who served their country during the Spanish American War, as well as how the Snake River and its aquifer have been the source of conflict around the state.

“Whether you are a history buff or someone looking to know a little more about your hometown and the Gem State, there is something at ‘Adventures in Idaho’ that will pique your interest,” said Terri Neu, City of Pocatello Staff Liaison to the Historic Preservation Commission. ‘We’d like to thank Idaho State University’s Department of History for helping to sponsor a well-rounded list of speakers and topics for this year’s symposium.”

The symposium is free and open to the public. The discussions will be held in the Wood River Room of the Pond Student Union Building on the campus of Idaho State University.
