About the Owners
Our names are Kory (Steele) and Amanda (Jo) Edelmayer, and we hail from Roberts, Idaho. We’ve been married since October 28, 1995. We are avid outdoor Idaho people. Hunting, fishing, jet boating, razor riding, and rafting are just a way of life for us. Snowmobiling in Bone is one of our favorite pastimes.
We fell in love with Bone many years ago after our beloved friends Mandy Jo and Chris Blake bought and remodeled the place. We spent many a day and night up here sanding, tiling, landscaping, smokin’ meat, and drinkin’ beers with them. We even started the first off-road rally with them called, “Brody’s Ride for MDA.” Truly, those are some of our most treasured memories. The legacy they created is one we want to carry on.
We have four children and gained two amazing daughters: Clint & Kaylee, Hadley & Mariya, Sydney Jo and Bridger.
We love our tribe and invite you to experience the beauty of Bone and celebrate the Legends and Legacies that have branded Bone as a connection destination where everyone belongs.
Cheers to Legends and Legacies – Out Where the Wild Things Are…Steele-n-Jo
The History of Bone
Orion Bone was the magnificent man who brought The Bone Store to Bone – literally, he moved a schoolhouse from Birch Creek to what would become the iconic location where so many have found a connection.
Spence Williams took on the challenge of operating the store, and shortly after his death the store was torn down and burned – the legend is a family member was looking for a million-dollar treasure. Tom Robison donated land to Max Rockwood. Max built the existing building that stands today. Max sold out to Robert and Venetta Bell (Bob & Vee). Together they carried on the legacy of Bone and added their own traditions – one of the most prominent is the brands that adorn the ceiling. Later Harvey and Julie Collins would take the reins of Bone and operate it for a few years.
The Store has changed hands several more times since then – a few names we’ve been able to confirm are Dennis Neyhard, Ron and Sissie Kruger, Sherry Day, Douglas Day and Elizabeth Moscrip, and our beloved friends Mandy and Chris Blake. We know there are many more – we just haven’t confirmed them. We’d love to hear your Bone story of previous owners – come share them with us!
Fun Fact: Bone was one of the last cities to receive telephone service. ET could phone home from Bone In 1982.
