Subject: [IDLatah] Linville Village,
Need help in locating Linville Village in Latah County. It is listed as
place of a uncle of mine.
I believe it to be in the around Moscow.
I think you're looking for Lenville. As I recall it is very near Kendrick.
(T38N R3W sec 24)
From a book I purchased while in Moscow doing research, called "From A to Z
in Latah County, Idaho - A Place Name Directory."
Description from the book: 'T38N R4W sec 16. An early trading center S of
Joel and about 13 mi SE of Moscow, originally composed of a general store
established by Leonard "Len" Nichols and a school established in 1890;
later also a blacksmith shop and chop mill were added - all are gone now and
only long-time residents of the area can point out where they once were. A
post office was established 11 June 1890 with Leonard H. Nichols as
postmaster; subsequent postmasters were Patrick Kumier, 29 Sept 1894;
Millard F. Johnson, 11 May 1901; post office discontinued 16 July 1901; mail
to Genesee. (T37N R5W sec 14) nicknamed "Soldier Neighborhood" because of
the many Civil War soldiers who settled in the area. Named for Leonard
"Len" Nichols. Lenville appears on the 1883 and 1907 GLO maps of Idaho, and
on the 1898 Rand McNally Pocket Map of Idaho.'
Hope this helps,

Kendrick/Juliaetta area of Latah County, Idaho.
