Asotin, Anatone, Cloverland, Clarkston, and Silcott are all towns within Asotin County, an area rich in local history. Names like Lewis and Clark, Chief Joseph, Capt. Benjamin Bonneville, Capt. Edward Steptoe, Chief Looking Class, Chief Timothy, and Henry Spaulding all had early ties to the area. Asotin was carved out of Garfield County on October 27, 1883. There are fascinating stories of early pioneers, such as Weissenfels, Floch, Wilson, Stone, Critchfield, Halsey, and many more, who came from far and wide to settle the area, becoming farmers, building towns, and establishing an irrigation system. Through the years, Asotin has encountered floods, murders, hangings, a disastrous fire, and a fight to retain the county seat. At one point, the residents thought they might have to battle the Nez Perce Indians, but they were peaceful and very kind to the people.

Jeri Jackson McGuire is the author of the popular book Images of America: Clarkston about Clarkston, Washington. This is her second book. Born in Lewiston, Idaho, she grew up near these towns and collects historical photographs. She is a lifetime member of the Asotin County Museum, as well as a member of the Nez Perce County Historical Society.

11th Annual Art Demonstration Day
Date: Saturday, April 7, 11 am to 4 pm

Art demonstration days were developed to showcase the creative processes of regional people each year on a different theme. At the Barn we celebrate creativity and hope that visitors will be inspired to learn more by taking a class in a new medium, or go home and try a new idea, or just appreciate what others do to create in that medium. Participants have their creations for sale at these events.
