Hailed as the first permanent settlement in Idaho, Franklin is home to a wealth of history dating back to its 1860 founding. Amid the many historic buildings, a log cabin structure constructed in 1937 is home to the Idaho Pioneer Association. The building was designated as the community’s Relic Hall, and it displays several artifacts from pioneer days. In addition, Mormon history buffs can find a picture of the Illinois jail where Joseph Smith was murdered, as well as photographs of Franklin’s founding pioneer men and women. The free museum is open 10 AM to 12 PM and 1 PM to 5 PM Monday through Friday from May to September.
