Historic Preservation Commission to Hold Scavenger Hunt at Mountain View Cemetery

Brady Chapel

The Pocatello Historic Preservation Commission is inviting residents to go on a hunt through history.  

Friday, October 11 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., the group will host its Fourth Annual Scavenger Hunt at Mountain View Cemetery starting at Brady Chapel. During the event, participants will look for gravesites of prominent Pocatello residents. Attendees are asked to bring their own camera or phone and flashlight to the scavenger hunt. For those wishing to do so, donations of any amount will be accepted at the event and the first 200 donors who complete the scavenger hunt will receive a free small ice cream cone from Tastee Treet or Arctic Circle. Plus, six randomly selected donors who complete the scavenger hunt will win a gift certificate from Tastee Treet or Arctic Circle.

“This is an opportunity for the community to visit the Brady Chapel and the beautiful Mountain View Cemetery,” said Terri Neu, City of Pocatello Staff Liaison to the Historic Preservation Commission. “It’s a fun time to learn about Pocatellans from years gone by.”

Officials ask that all attendees respect the cemetery and those who are interred there. 

Proceeds from the event go towards the restoration of Brady Chapel.
