Depot Attracts State Recognition
The Idaho State Historical Society Board of Trustees and ISHS Executive Director Jan Gallimore paid a visit to the Potlatch Depot, escorted by State Historian Keith Petersen and wife Mary Reed. The group, representing the entire state, toured Latah County sites on Friday, making stops in outlying communities such as Troy, Genesee, Deary and Potlatch. Clearly they enjoyed the Depot and Blackbird Station, and several made purchases from our new tenants. Pictured in the photos are top, left to right: Judy Meyer (Coeur d'Alene), Jan Gallimore, Keith Petersen, Tom Blanchard (Southern Idaho) in front of the cabinets bought with ISHS grant funds. Bottom photo shows HPG President Jack Coyner talking to the group about depot restoration funding. All in all it was a wonderful time with a very enthusiastic group!
