Information

In 1834 Thomas McKay, an associate of the Hudson Bay Company, built a fort on the east bank of the Snake River. By 1843, it had become a haven for many travelers along the Oregon Trail. A flood destroyed the original adobe buildings in 1853 and the site was abandoned. Parma's Old Fort Boise on the eastern edge of town has a replica of Fort Boise, a museum and an authentic pioneer cabin. A RV park, picnic area and campground are available near the park. Private tours can be arranged by calling 208 722-6477
