WELCOME TO IDAHO’S AGRICULTURAL PAST

The historic Schick-Ostolasa Farmstead is located in the foothills north of Boise, 15 minutes from downtown.  

The farmstead was inhabited from the 1860s - 2005.  It is the longest continuously inhabited home in the state of Idaho.  

Today, the preserved Farmstead site covers 2 acres along Dry Creek, with seven historic farm buildings: the Farmhouse, a Detached Red Cookhouse and Spring House (called the Red House), Root Cellar, Woodshed, Saddle Shed, Granary, and a Horse Barn.

The historic site was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2006 for its regional significance as an outstanding example of early homesteading in Idaho, and 19th & 20th century agriculture in the West.

The Dry Creek Historical Society, Inc. is an Idaho 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization established to preserve the rural agricultural heritage of the Dry Creek Valley, Idaho. Their primary tenets are not only to preserve the Farmstead and property but also to educate.  They do this through our School Tours, Events, Farmhouse Tours (May - September), Newsletters, etc.  ​Visit DryCreekHistory.org for more information on the history and to schedule your tour.
