KOOSKIA/KAMIAH — Saturday, Feb. 22, Bob Squires presents, “Homesteaders of the Middle Fork.” This is only one of the programs to be sponsored by the Kooskia Library this winter. Bob’s powerpoint presentation highlights years of research about the early homesteaders along the Middle Fork of the Clearwater River. He began this journey to find out more about his grandfather, William Squires, who settled on Harris Ridge in the early 1900s. His continued interest in the area homesteaders then led him to do more research along Sutler Creek, the Middle Fork and Selway rivers. He is currently working on the homesteaders from the prairie of Idaho County.
Presentation is at 1 p.m. in the Kooskia Community Center. Public is encouraged to attend and bring the children and hear some of the history of our area.
