Thank you for your patience while I re-build the website.  Check back often for the new look and many new and updated records!  I have big plans!  

If you have information that you would like to share, please do not hesitate to email me .   The more we share with other researchers the better.

Lewis County was officially established March 3, 1911 and was created from Nez Perce County.  Prior to this Lewis County area had a very colorful history.  The Nez Perce Indians made this area their home for hundreds of years.  The first white men to tread on the soil of what is now Lewis County were Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, during their famed expedition to the Pacific Coast in 1805-1806.  County organizers bestowed upon Meriwether Lewis the honor of naming the county after him.
