About Us

White Spring Ranch was founded by John & Mary Lorang in 1885 and was listed on the National Historical Registry as a museum in 2004.  The museum contains an extensive library collection of first hand documents, of photographs, letters, journals, publications and artifacts covering 140 years of American history and rural wheat farming collected by three generations of the family.  White Spring Ranch Museum/Archive Library is open for tours and events and we invite you to visit and enjoy this beautiful icon that documents the days and events of the past.  More….

Little House Day 2022

Saturday September 3, 2022  
1pm -8 pm.

 Our event will be held in a simpler way. With smaller numbers, longer hours and family distancing. Learn about the Laura Ingalls Wilder Little House stories through the setting of a beautiful 1878 Idaho Log cabin that is open for tours until 8 p.m, in order to spread visitors throughout the day. But arrive around 1:00 p.m. for the most fiddling music by Alan Chidester. For those who would like a tour description, I will be providing these throughout the day.
An Ice Cream Social and Little House Interpretive day, linking with Idaho stories…. and a Log cabin with artifacts. The Historical Farmhouse dated c.1873-1904, is also Open for tours.
Many of the Little House stories also have parallel stories right here in Idaho with our pioneers. Sponsored by Idaho Humanities Council, Latah Arts & Culture and Genesee Recreation District grants. Donations are welcome, to keep this all going! Come early for WSU Ice Cream and Music.
Entrance by donation of your choice.
