P.O. Box 37 Kendrick ID 83537.Southwick is about 11 miles up a grade from
the North-Central Idaho valley community of Kendrick resting atop
Potlatch Ridge. This book tells of the homesteaders, who started
arriving in the early 1880s, that wrote home about the rich, fertile farming and timbered areas. Southwick grew to be a major community in the early 1900s. Families traveled the few miles from the Cedar Ridge area to obtain supplies in Southwick. Multiple factors contributed to the community's decline making it now is a pleasant ghost town which boasts the only store front property- The Southwick Center- left on the ridges as you travel the road between Kendrick and Orofino. Homes continue to be intermingled between a few agricultural businesses and a church.
Leland History - A Pioneer History $33.00
Leland is located six miles up a grade from the North-Central Idaho valley community of Kendrick resting atop Potlatch Ridge. It is nearly a ghost town today with a claim to six dwellings, one church, and one business. JKHF's 400 plus page historical publication merges past history with present realities. Numerous documenting pictures and revealing stories paint a vivid picture of the characters, families, decisions, and events that shaped this Idaho territorial footprint called Leland.
In its heyday, lasting from 1890 to 1930, the town contributed a significant population base to the county. The Methodists established a church in 1890 holding their services in the town’s schoolhouse. Their last church, built in 1930, is the only church these days that offers religious services in Leland. The sole business, currently in town, survives by providing chemicals to the surrounding farmers.

Letters from the Front -- Volume I
For many years, the folks living in the North Central Idaho valley communities of Kendrick, Juliaetta, and along their bordering seven ridges subscribed to the Kendrick Gazette newspaper. During WWII, Bill (Mac) McCreary, the editor, sent his newspaper to our local soldiers. During that time, letters Mac received from service people and their families became part of the paper.
“Letters From the Front-Volume I" is a reprint of the 1945 WWII letters published by the Kendrick Gazette. This 387 page book also contains numerous pictures and 97 soldier biographical sketches. It is dedicated to the ten local soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their life to this war.
