From sandstone blocks quarried across the Snake river and carried to the site by a barge and wagons the Glenns Ferry Historical Museum was built and the building once served as a school for the years 1909 to 1965. By the year of 1987, the establishment was declared a historic figure on the National Historical Register and was later on bought by the City of Glenns Ferry to be transformed into a museum housing collections of articles that are significant to the history, development and the lifestyles of the people from the city of Glenns Ferry, Hammett and King Hill area.

The area was blessed by citizens of varying interest because of the early Indian inhabitants. People coming on the Oregon Trail and staying to cultivating the sheep and cattle industries in the area, the Oregon Short line Railroad made Glenns Ferry a division point and the King Hill Irrigation Project brought the early farming progress.

The Glenns Ferry Historical Museum houses a collection of different materials from different eras and industries as well as memorabilia of schools, households and personal belongings. A visit to the museum is free, however donations are much appreciated since that is means of support the museum can continue to further enhance the museum?s exhibits and facilities.
