Latah County From Steptoe Butte

Welcome to the Latah County, Idaho GenWeb site

Hi there! My name is Kerry Moser. I am the volunteer coordinator for Latah County. I was born, raised and have lived within 30 miles of Latah County for 55 years.

Latah County is located in North Central Idaho; bordered on the west by Whitman County, WA. Whitman and Latah Counties are referred to as “The Palouse.”  The Palouse Scenic Byway is a designated sight seeing route through the Palouse.

Latah County is the only county in the United States that was established by an act of congress in 1937. It is comprised of 1,077 square miles.

Incorporated cities in Latah County are: Bovill, Deary, Genesee, Juliaetta, Kendrick, Moscow, Onoway, Potlatch and Troy. Unincorporated communities are Avon, Cedar Creek, Harvard, Helmer, Howell, Joel, Princeton and Viola.

The County seat is Moscow. Moscow is also the home of the University of Idaho; a land grant and primary research university founded in 1889.  It is the oldest public university in Idaho.

Whitman County, WA, to the west of us is home to Washington State University, founded in 1890 it is Washington's original  land grant university and world class research institute.

If you have historical or genealogical information on Latah County or past residents, that you would like to pass on for use on this site, please feel free to do so. I welcome old pictures of the area, families, citizens, along with obituaries, biographies, and any other historical information.

This Latah County GenWeb site is a work in progress. I am currently working on learning how to update the pages, correct broken links, etc.
If you find broken links, please let me know.

Thanks so much!
