Placerville in Boise County, Idaho — The American West (Mountains)
Henrietta Penrod Museum
Henrietta Penrod later purchased the decaying structure intending to restore the saloon. Through her efforts and those of other civic-mined residents the building was renovated. Penrod sold the Magnolia to the City of Placerville for the sum of $1 and a promise to establish it as a museum.
The museum now contains artifacts, pictures and records recalling life in one of Southern Idaho's most important communities. In September 1894 (sic), the Henrietta Penrod Museum was selected as a Contributory Property and placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Erected 2007 by Placerville Historical Society and E Clampus Vitus, Snake River Outpost No. 1811 of Lucinda J. Sanders Chapter No. 1881.
