Stephen & Janet Croskrey Historical Collections

(including the Lewis & Clark Collection)

The Stephen &  Janet Croskrey Historical Collections include local historical materials which are often difficult to find. For that reason, we keep these items in a locked case and allow people to use them in the library. Examples of materials in the collections include cemetery records, school yearbooks, early histories, and Aoki’s dictionary of the Nez Perce Language. The Lewis & Clark Collection is part of the Croskrey Collection, but is stored on open shelves and available for checkout.
