The first potatoes grown in Idaho were planted in northern Idaho by Rev. Henry Spaulding. It was a successful crop but his missionary work was brought to an end by the Whitman massacre and the Spauldings were forced to leave in 1850. This is a one-of-a-kind museum, a little small, but packed with lots of interesting information and exhibits. The museum is well laid out, the displays are easy to read and informative. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.
