Who Are We
Idahistory is a history tour and research service that came together from a few friends passionate about gaining and sharing knowledge about the past in Idaho and beyond. In late 2016, the idea simply began as discussions about our interest in providing an outlet for the general public to gain insight about the history of our state. Mark and Travis would talk for hours about world issues and history. It helped being only two doors down from each other during our day-jobs. This passion led to the laying of the foundations for creating a service to Idaho locals and visitors alike interested in the region we live, work, and play in.
Why We Do This
At Idahistory Tours we believe entertaining and scholarly history go hand in hand. Idaho's history takes many forms; it is diverse, tragic, at times inspiring; it's even humorous. We aspire to contextualize important, but rarely explored facets of Idaho's past. We strive to entertain and educate. Most importantly, we intend to learn from and about our patrons, because it is history's focus on the human condition that makes it meaningful.
What We Can Do For You
We seek to create a service that doesn’t tell you what to think, but rather seek to simply layout all the sources of information we find throughout the many archives and databases we access, and tie it all into a informative and entertaining historical narrative. We include the good, the bad, the ugly without any agenda other than accuracy. We want you to draw your own conclusions with the information presented. We hope you enjoy the articles and posts on our social media and website. Please book a tour to see us in action!
