Council Valley Museum Textiles

The Council Valley Museum Displays a collection of local artifacts given to the City of Council by local resident, Charles Winkler. Mr. Winkler and his uncle William Winkler, a Council pioneer, developed their collection over a period of almost 80 years. Most items pertain to Council Valley and Adams County history. When Council city offices moved to new quarters in 1996, the second floor of the old city hall was turned over to the museum.

The Trust helped to preserve a collection of textiles that included clothing, hats and a quilt brought to Idaho from Pennsylvania over the Oregon Trail in the 1870s.
