Vanishing History

Just 10 miles south of Moscow, the historic Kambitsch Farm barn is being dismantled (see photo above), another casualty of progress. The barn is owned by the University of Idaho, and after a search for funding to rehabilitate the 80-year-old draft horse barn, the university had to give up. This is just a reminder that a similar fate awaited the historic WI&M depot at Potlatch, except that a few interested people put some effort into making things happen. We have more to do to finish the depot, but at least we don't have to watch it being dismantled.

Thanks for posting the photo and kind words. At least the barn will continue virtually!
