Southwick is about 11 miles up a grade from
the North-Central Idaho valley community of Kendrick resting atop Potlatch
Ridge. This book tells of the homesteaders, who started arriving in the early 1880ís,
that wrote home
about the rich, fertile farming and timbered areas. Southwick grew to be a
major community in the early
1900's. Families traveled the few miles from the Cedar Ridge area to obtain
supplies in Southwick. Multiple factors contributed
to the community's decline making it now is a pleasant bump in the road between
Kendrick and Orofino. Homes continue to be intermingled between a few agricultural
businesses, a church, and a community center building. The following
book link provides a view of the
index listing .

attention. Generous grant and public support dollars, totaling
$11,450.00 in 2013, allowed for front, south and west wall attention.
Rooftop repairs and a
50-year total brick protective coating are the final project needs.
