Historic Walking Tours

Rhonda Jameson has been giving tours of Idaho City's Historic District, for 20 years. Pre-scheduled tours go out, starting at the Idaho City Visitor Center, on Hwy 21/Main St., on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at 10:00am, and last about an hour. They are appropriate for all ages who can walk 4-6 blocks. Prepare to be transported in time, to the 1860's, when Idaho City was the Queen of the Gold Camps - biggest city in the Pacific  Northwest.  Tour includes the Miners Exchange Saloon and vault, the Idaho Territorial Penitentiary, and Courthouse, among the dozens of historic buildings. It is appropriate for all ages who can walk 4-6 blocks. Tours are $3/person, with a $30 minimum.
