The Adams County Historical Society’s newly published book “Links To Our Past” a history of Meadows Valley, by author Carla Barham Standley. Carla grew up on the Circle C Ranch in New Meadows, Idaho that at one time was the largest independently owned ranch in Idaho. She is now a resident of Emmett, Idaho. Carla has a passion for history which is evident in this book. “Links To Our Past” covers history of the growth of Meadows Valley, City of New Meadows (Village at that time), town of Meadows and the industries that supported the economics and growth of the Valley.
In 2005 the Smithsonian Institute had a traveling exhibit titled Barn Again!. Arrangements were made for the exhibit to come to the newly remodeled “Freight Room” at the P&IN Railway Depot. This spurred some members of the Adams County Historical Society (ACHS) to document the historic barns in Meadows Valley, Idaho before they faded away as some had already done.
This book documents, in black and white photographs, the historic barns of the valley beginning with one as early as 1889. Most are on working ranches and in use. Using the same protocol to date all barns the committee endeavored to provide a record of some of the history of Meadows Valley. Along with the photos is a biography of ownership past and present.
