PROJECT: "Brick Repair" Overview:
The Fraternal Temple building's external brickwork is only one unique feature that placed
the 1905 Community Center building on the
National Register of Historic Places listing. Some of the bricks
came from Kendrick's Fruchtl Brick Company.
Generous grant and public support dollars, totaling
$11,450.00 in 2013, allowed for each of 4 story walls to have leaks and
crumbling brick areas repaired.
Phase 4 needs address crumbling rooftop tower edging and chimney bricks and
will improve the area's drainage as well as provide a
50-year total brick protective coating. Community
support can be provided either with a JKHF designated project contribution or
through the Buy- A -Brick fundraiser ($50.00/brick that can
accommodate up to two names) for the completion of this $25,000 final
PROJECT: K-J and area Newspaper Collecting
Because newsprint deteriorates
rapidly JKHF is collecting ALL our service area's newspaper publications
to microfilm and then digitize to allow easy web research. We have a good start on the 108 years of
Kendrick Gazette publications however are need your newspapers to fill
in many "gap"
editions. Also wanted is the 1904 "The Canyon Echo"
Juliaetta had several newspapers: The Gem, The Potlatch, The Juliaetta
Advance, Thee Potlatch Press, The Register, The Potlatch Herald,
The Juliaetta Enterprise, the Independent, The Juliaetta Record, and the
Juliaetta Sun. Cameron had The Potlatch Herald and Wyckliff
Smith published the Potlatch Herald for Southwick also. Contact: Sharon Harris
Kendrick Gazette owner LuJane Nisse lifted
the newspaper's copyright restrictions for this JKHF project.
Kai Eiselein donated over 75
Kendrick volumes of published newspapers that each Kendrick publisher
archived over the years. Each volume covers a year in time and is
in pristine condition.
In 2013 the National Endowment
for the Humanities awarded the Idaho State Historical Society (ISHS) a
$277,000 grant to begin digitizing 20% of the Society's rich collection
of historic newspapers from around the state. When completed in
two years, the first 100,000 pages of the 500,000 Idaho news pages
published between 1864 and 1922 will be available to the public online,
free of charge. Better yet, the entire collection will be keyword
searchable. This digital resource will be permanently maintained
at the Library of Congress
Earl Bennett, our ISHS
district trustee, recommended that
the Idaho Free County Press be done first, the Kendrick Gazette second
and two Cottonwood papers tie for third toward our area's one newspaper
selected in this project. No final state-wide newspaper selection,
one from each of the seven districts, have yet been made.
Ed Corkill Memorial Trail for Biking/Walking/Skating
This local 5.3-mile picturesque trail is
a paved pathway available for recreational use year around. This
section of the former Northern Pacific Railroad bed begins
near Kendrick High School. It winds through Kendrick and drops gently as it
follows the Potlatch River to Juliaetta, ending at Juliaetta’s Centennial
Park. Benches along the way allows for rest and reflection within our scenic
Potlatch River canyon. As an added educational benefit, there are twenty refurbished standard railroad
signs, eight RR informational signs, and three Kendrick Historical Tour
sites on this trail maintained by JKHF.
