Trial recreation highlights Idaho at 150 activities

Witness Bessie Croshaw (played by Sharon Sturm) reacts as the bailiff (played by Wayne Brower) takes away the prosecution’s exhibit—a skull and a bullet. The re-enactment of this 1887 murder trial will be performed at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Friday and at 11 a.m. on Saturday. Admission is free, reserve tickets are recommended since there is limited seating in the courtroom. Contact Sara Staub at 782-3160 for tickets.
Besides the trial re-enactment, Bingham County is celebrating Get Territorial: Idaho at 150 this week.
