Anoka Revisited

Stories Behind the Images

Photos Courtesy of Clearwater Historical Museum

The cover story of the magazine’s October 2019 issue was about a trove of historical photos discovered in rural Oregon that revived interest in the Idaho setting of the images: an early-twentieth-century community called Anoka on the Clearwater River’s North Fork. Long returned to Nature and almost forgotten, these properties were homesteaded by several prominent people, such as William B. Kinne, who became Idaho’s lieutenant governor. Kinne’s grandson, Mike McCarthy of Orofino, still has almost all of the images shown on these pages in his family photo album. In this return visit to Anoka, area residents offer a few stories behind the pictures. —The Editors
