Our Announcements:

We are all excited about the opening of our museum.  We are planning a different type of meeting for April.   On Saturday, April 11, 2015 we will gather at the museum beginning at 9:00 am to finalize museum displays and work on archival needs until noon when we will share an item each of us brings to eat.  Our meeting will begin at 1:00 pm.  Any time prior to lunch you can give will help organizational efforts tremendously as many hands accomplishes lots.

Is a DOWNTOWN KENDRICK  HISTORIC DISTRICT In Our Future?  You are invited to review data on this subject by viewing the posters in the Fraternal Temple window front windows and receive available handouts at Koffee Kups (704 E. Main Kendrick).  For information on historical districts contact Tricia Canaday, from the State Historic Preservation office (208) 334-3864 ext. 102.

Mark Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 1:00 - 4:00 pm. on your calendar.  It is our Museum and Research Center's GRAND OPENING.  It will be an afternoon of "Memories of the 1900's".  You are invited to climb the stairs to the second floor level of the Fraternal Temple (Grange) Building at 614 E. Main in Kendrick for remembering and learning.  In addition to viewing our unique eight segmented Museum displays and wondering though our Research Center's collections on the second floor the ground level area will provide additional showings and light refreshments.  Both of our DVD publications--Early Days of Kendrick and Early Days of Juliaetta will be running.  Additional traveling historical displays well also be available in the lower level Grand Room.

K-J and area Newspaper Collecting-Microfilming-Digitization-Web Publication: This project involves digitizing the 47 reels of Idaho State Historical Society microfilmed publications with the added ability for a subject search.  Juliaetta and many Kendrick newspapers (totaling 7,500 issues from 1890 - 1998) are currently available on the left side "Newspapers" link on this page.  More project details are also available at that location.  Thanks to a recent National Historical Publications & Records Commission grant and Latah County Arts and Culture Committee Nov. 2014 funding this project has moved forward.
