Historic Preservation Comm. to Present “Before All Hallow’s Eve, Share Twilight at Brady Chapel”


The public is invited for an eerie look at one of Pocatello’s most famous buildings on Friday the 13th.

From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., the Historic Preservation Commission will host the “Before All Hallow’s Eve, Share Twilight at Brady Chapel” fundraiser to help raise money for restoration efforts of the sanctuary. During the event, attendees will get to hear about the history of the chapel and what is in store for its future.  

“The Brady Chapel is a significant piece of Pocatello’s history,” said Melanie Gygli, Planning and Development Services Director. “Everyone should take 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.

Participants are also invited to bring a flashlight for a self-guided tour of the cemetery. The tour also includes an optional scavenger hunt and hunters are asked to bring a digital camera or cell phone with a camera to collect images for the hunt.

Everyone is invited to complete the scavenger hunt.  For those wishing to do so, donations of any amount will be accepted at the event and the first 100 donors who complete the scavenger hunt will receive a free small ice cream cone from Tastee Treet. Plus, three randomly selected donors who complete the scavenger hunt will win a gift certificate from Tastee Treet. Those who are unable to attend but are interested in donating to the restoration effort can contact Terri Neu at 208-234-6500.
