The City of Eagle is proud to announce a name change for the former Eagle Historical Museum. From now on the museum will be called the Eagle Museum of History and Preservation.

The name change is the first phase of an effort to unify historic preservation efforts in Eagle by bringing the Historic Preservation Commission under the umbrella of the museum. The organizational change will allow the Historic Preservation Commission and Eagle Museum of History and Preservation to work more efficiently together to protect and promote Eagle’s history.

The museum opened its doors in October 2001 and for 18 years has been actively involved with collecting, preserving, and exhibiting historic items, documents, and photographs. The museum tells the story of Eagle’s development from its pioneer roots through the modern era. In addition to exhibits that focus on the growth and development of Eagle since the late 1880s, the museum houses a public access historic archive.

The Historic Preservation Commission’s mission is to safeguard the city’s historic structures and features; to foster civic pride in the past; to promote the use of historic districts and landmarks for the education, pleasure, and welfare of the people of the city; and to encourage preservation of historic integrity in land use and development planning.

If you would like to visit the museum it is located at 67 E State Street Eagle, ID 83616. Museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 9 AM to 6 PM.
