Every year, The Friends of The Bishops' House work towards restoring and sustaining the house. We also sponsor many events for the public, from Lecture Series to open tours of the house.

So much of what the house is today, and where it stands, would not have been possible without grants, fundraisers, donations and volunteer work from our generous community.

"The Friends of The Bishops' House" is a non-profit organization dedicated to the historic preservation of this grand old building. This beautiful building was once home to a succession of the Episcopal Bishops of Idaho. Each of the men who served as the head of Episcopal Diocese of Idaho lived in this home with their families while serving in the capacity as the Episcopal Bishop of Idaho. The original house was built in the late 1880's and was remodeled to its current stately, towered Queen Anne style Victorian home in 1899.
