The Stanley Museum was built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. It was used until 1972 as the Valley Creek Ranger Station, until the Sawtooth National Recreation Area was developed. Rangers used to live and work within the building, but it is now open to the public as a museum. There are a variety of exhibits in every room, some focusing on mining, while others focus on ranching. There is also a restored Ice House on site for visitors to enter, and see how food was refridgerated long ago.
