Hayden Historic Preservation Commission invites the public to view a new exhibit of old photographs of the city as it used to be. Photographs taken as early as 1920 are on view in the lobby of Hayden City Hall, 8930 N. Government Way. Old family pictures as well as shots of the original barns, schools, log cabins, and homes of the founders of Hayden can be seen here.  
Disbursed among the photographs are many old implements that would have been used during those early days: noodle cutters, sugar tongs, syrup pitchers, a stereoscope, a washboard, and a candle snuffer. Another arrangement contains early writing tools such as turkey feather pens, fountain pens, a mother-of-pearl calling card case, and a child's writing slate.
Tools and small equipment from early 20th century lumber mills of the Northwest accessorize other photo displays: a mill steam whistle, a hand-crank sharpening wheel, fire hose nozzles, a variety of oil valves, and miscellaneous hand tools. 
Visiting hours are 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday.
