Museums & Exhibits in Montpelier
Museums & Exhibits icon.

The Bank of Montpelier was established in 1891 as the first chartered bank in Idaho and became famous after Butch Cassidy and his Wild Bunch Gang robbed the bank on August 13, 1896. It is the only bank in the country robbed by these infamous outlaws that is still standing.  The old building was restored to reflect the 1890s time frame and original elements and artifacts were preserved so guests may walk on the same floor that Butch Cassidy did or take a picture by the original bank vault.
