The History of Bone

Bone was founded by Orion Yost Bone, who settled southeast of Idaho Falls around 1910. He found a need for a general store in his new community, so he moved a schoolhouse from Birch Creek to Bone and named it the Bone Store.

The Bone Store has changed locations and owners numerous times over the years. Each new owner brought their own unique touch to the venue. The previous owners, Mandy Jo and the late Chris Blake, remodeled the venue significantly in 2011 and brought about an entirely different type of charm and enchantment.

Their vision was to create a destination where people could come and relax, visit, enjoy some good music, great food, and ice-cold drinks. We intend to carry on with their legacy while adding a few nuances of our own.

We know our place will always be known as The Bone Store. The brands that adorn the ceiling have been a treasured viewing experience by many who have left their mark from the mid-1900s. The long-time tradition of putting dollar bills on the ceiling continues to this day. It’s a way of saying “I was here” for many who have come to call Bone their home away from home. Like the brands and dollar bills on the ceiling, we wanted to put our brand on the store.
