BLACKFOOT â€” Stories of Bingham Countyâ€™s history have been compiled into a book entitled â€śBingham County Memories Volume II.â€ť Local historian Lois Bates compiled it.

â€śI remember climbing into my grandmotherâ€™s lap and begging her to tell me stories about our family,â€ť Bates said.
Her grandmother came from Switzerland.
â€śThere is so much history that has got to be preserved,â€ť she said. â€śStories will go away if they are not preserved.â€ť
â€śIâ€™m excited about this book,â€ť said Bates.
