Pocatello’s Fort Hall Replica, a reproduction of an original Hudson’s Bay Fort is open to the public six days a week until August 30. Constructed from plans obtained from the Hudson’s Bay Company and extensive research based on early descriptions of the Fort from persons who lived at or visited Fort Hall, the reproduction is historically accurate. Hours are 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Monday through Saturday.
As stated on their website, “A visit to the Fort Hall Replica is to enter the 19th Century world of explorers, trappers, fur traders, Native Americans, pioneers, gold seekers, historic figures, and common folk; all of whom visited the place called Fort Hall on the banks of the Snake River in what is now Southeast Idaho.”
The cost to visit the exhibit is $6.00 for adults, $5.00 for seniors, $3.00 for youth ages 6-17, and free for children under 6.
Looking for a unique venue for your organization or family gathering? You can also rent the Fort for only $100 plus a $50 deposit for the day.
The Fort Hall Replica is located at 3002 Alvord Loop, Upper Ross Park in Pocatello.
