Patricia Eames

Orchid: Friend of Preservation


Since 2003, Pat has worked tirelessly to preserve what remains of historic McCall – which as she would tell you is no easy task. As chair of the McCall Historic Preservation Commission since 2005, Pat has worked to identify site of historic significance in the McCall area and initiate plans to protect them. Like many community volunteers, her work does not stop there - she served as a board member of the Central Idaho Historical Museum from 2002-2008 and employed her significant experience as an archivist when volunteering for the McCall Public Library for the last five years. McCall Mayor Kulesza notes that “when anyone has a question about (McCall’s) history, Pat is the first person that comes to mind.” These and many other reasons are why Pat is a Friend of Preservation.
