Rock Creek Station and Stricker Homesite is a historical site operated by the Idaho State Historical Society. It includes the Stricker Store and Farm, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. Two previously important roadways (Oregon Trail and the Kelton Road) met at this site.
At one time, the Rock Creek Station was the largest stage station between Fort Hall and Fort Boise. In 1864, Ben Holladay selected the site for a home station on his Overland Stage Line. In 1865, James Bascom built the Rock Creek Store. In 1876, Herman Stricker purchased the store and remained the proprietor until it closed in 1897.
