Join us on the Salmon-Challis National Forest this year as we take on another phase of the stabilization efforts at McKenzie House! McKenzie House was built in the 1880s and, in its prime, was considered among the finest houses in Custer, a once bustling boom-town that sprang-up on a terrace of the Yankee Fork Salmon River in 1879, after gold was discovered in the area. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), and The Yankee Fork Interpretive Association has partnered with the Salmon-Challis National Forest to provide interpretive services and caretaking at the town. The annual Custer Days celebration draws hundreds of visitors each year, and we hope to give them a glimpse of what this magnificent house and its surrounds may have looked like in its heyday. See you in June for an exciting week-long project in the heart of a 19th-century ghost town!
