SIHA's Museum Crew in front of Historic Pole Creek Ranger Station

The Stanley Museum's 2022 Dynamic Duo

With the season changing, SIHA is gearing up to open, and one of our first things to awake from hibernation is the Stanley Museum! Located downriver from Stanley on Highway 75, the museum has many exhibits, artifacts, and a scavenger hunt! Our museum is staffed by two of our crew, one a long-time returner and the other new to the area. 

Megan Nelson is returning for her fourth year with SIHA (this might be a records!) as our 2022 Museum Docent. While originally from Wisconsin, Megan has swapped the Great Lakes for Idaho’s alpine lakes. She returns to us from far-away Pocatello, and is excited to be back. When Megan isn’t up in the mountains with us, she’s studying for her Masters in Applied Historical Research at Boise State University.


Cameron Dickie is joining us for the first time as our 2022 Historic Specialist. Cameron is coming from Boise, where he has just graduated with a BA in History. He is excited to be in the Sawtooths, and to learn the many interesting stories the valley holds. After the season, Cameron returns to Boise State where he will continue his education through a graduate program in the History department.


We are excited to have both Cameron and Megan at the museum for the summer, answering questions and doing interpretive programs. Stop by the Stanley Museum, open 10am-5pm every day of the week, mid-June through Labor Day. Keep an eye out for more information on History Day hosted at the Stanley Museum, July 9th.
