Charles Winkler Memorial Museum/
Council Valley Museum

Location: 100 South Galena Street, Council
Phone: (208) 253-4201
The history of Council and the surrounding area begins primarily after the 1889 arrival of George and Elizabeth Winkler. The Winklers had six children, all of whom made significant contributions to Idaho politics, law, and the economy, as well as serving in World War I. This museum honors these contributions as well as other area families who have helped turn Council into what it is today. Visitors will find an extensive photo collection, Civil War diaries, Native American relics, memorabilia from the Prohibition era, area newspapers dating back to 1877, cemetery records, and much more. The museum is open from 10 AM to 4 PM Tuesday through Saturday and 1 PM to 4 PM on Sundays from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
