First Territorial Capitol of Idaho Revitalization Project, Inc. seeks to create a physical legacy of the history of the first Territorial Capital and provide historical, educational and economical impact and benefits for our Community, our Country, and our State.
Fund raising started in April 2011 and will continue to end of December 2011. $100,000 approximately is the target for phase I to cover the initial build including permits, parking and land acquisition.
Fund raising efforts for donations have brought in some $21,000 approximately plus $2,000 firm pledges. $20,000 is being sought via grant applications with approximately $32,000 being requested from the Urban Renewal Agency as financial support for sidewalks, curbs and gutters; purchase of the land to increase parking downtown.

Benefits to our Community:
The benefits of having a replica of the First Territorial Capitol of Idaho in a location as close to its original locations, provides residents and visitors a "hand on" view of the area and its historical background, while providing education and an excellent visitor destination. Having the replica of the First Territorial Capitol of Idaho close to the new library and LCSC Center for Arts and History brings a central location as a focal point for all to enjoy!
