2010 Orchid: Friend of Preservation Award

Since 1977, the Idaho Historic Preservation Council, Preservation Idaho, has hosted the annual Orchids & Onions Awards, a ceremony designed to celebrate those individuals and organizations that have made a positive contribution to historic preservation, and in turn, to bring awareness to those projects which have shown an insensitivity to historic preservation.  In 2010 the Juliaetta-Kendrick Heritage Foundation was selected to receive the Orchid: Friend of Preservation award and the City of Kendrick was selected to receive the Onion award for their 2010 efforts relating to the destruction to the Kendrick Railroad Depot.  The original "Kendrick" Depot design, the same person to whom the town was named, is seen below.  Of the 34 Kendrick-designed depots built throughout the northwest ours was the last still located at its original site.

Sharon Harris, JKHF President is Idaho State Historical Society's Recipient of Prestigious 'Esto Perpetua' Award -- picture also shows  Earl Bennett, our Idaho State Historical Society's representative.

    The 'Esto Perpetua' award takes its name form the state's motto, "Let it be perpetual".  It recognizes people and organizations who have preserved and promoted Idaho's history through professional accomplishments, public service or volunteerism and philanthropy.  Since the beginning of the award presentations in 1999, the Idaho State Historical Society has honored 105 recipients.  Idaho State Historical Society's annual awards celebration this year is on Tuesday, June 2, 2015 honoring nine individuals and two organizations state wide.

 History shows us Who we Were, Who we Are, and Who we may Become.
