K-J and area Newspaper Collecting
Because newsprint deteriorates
rapidly JKHF is collecting ALL our service area's newspaper publications
to then microfilm. We have a good start on the 108 years of
Kendrick Gazette publications however are searching for many "gap"
editions. Kendrick also had a 1904 "The Canyon Echo" publication.
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
There Juliaetta Sun. Cameron had The Potlatch Herald and Wyckliff
Smith published the Potlatch Herald for Southwick also. Kendrick
Hardware is the collection spot for us to retrieve your newspapers.
Upon acquiring grant funding a microfilm reader will be purchased for
public usage so these gems, containing invaluable pieces of our history,
will be forever available.
2013 "HOME" Preparations
JKHF looks forward to our new home being located on the second floor
(2,580 sq. ft.)
the 110 year old
8,200 sq. ft.
Kendrick Fraternal Temple building. Because of
rejuvenations and energy efficiency updates, to be completed in late
2013, JKHF's space allocation will allow for meetings, educational
sessions, historical research, archival storage, and will provide
Kendrick with its only historical museum. Archival storage,
preservation and research currently are provided. A JKHF computer and a
microfiche reader are useful assets already in place.
The unique and much admired external brick work displayed on this
building is also in need of attention. Some of the bricks used in
1903 came from Kendrick's Fruchtl Brick Company! Kelly Emo from
Emo's Masonry, Gutters & Roofing, located in Deary, is the
contractor for this multi-phase brick project.
Tour Project Overview:
JKHF accepted the comprehensive care of the
16-year-old Juliaetta and Kendrick Walking Tour. Our first priority

and 35 historic
home signs purchased. A spring 2013 installation is planned for
the J-K historic home designations. Both communities individually
will have a tour booklet and DVD published. Kendrick publications
will go to press in January 2013 with Juliaetta's planned for
Walking Tour items will be available at Kendrick Hardware and other
business supporting partners with the project being completed prior to
