Since 1977, Preservation Idaho has hosted the annual ceremony designed to celebrate those individuals and organizations that have made a positive contribution to historic preservation, and in turn, to bring awareness to those projects which have shown an insensitivity to historic preservation. The Jury has met and we soon will be announcing Orchids & Onion honorees for 2016. Please join us May 21st at the Historic Ada County Courthouse. Tickets are now on sale!
