The Old West comes alive at Parma’s Old Fort Boise Replica and Museum. Constructed by the Hudson’s Bay Company in 1834 as competition for nearby Fort Hall, Old Fort Boise became an important supply post along the Oregon Trail. The fort was abandoned, however, in 1854 after severe flooding and increased skirmishes with area Native Americans. In 1863, a new Fort Boise was constructed in present day Boise, but a replica of the first fort can still be found near the original site. Although the replica is not completely accurate, it still offers visitors a taste of what life would have been like in the mid 1800s. The replica offers a historical museum and pioneer cabin amid the fort’s reconstructed concrete walls, as well as the annual Old Fort Boise Days. The facility is open from 1 PM to 3 PM Friday through Sunday from June through August or by appointment.
