In 1940 and 1941, a survey of everyone who had lived in Washington County continuously for 50
years or more was made by the Weiser American newspaper. These pioneer residents were
especially honored at the Fall Festival held in the fall of both years. So far as is known, the 
list compiled by the survey is complete and perhaps the only record of its kind in existence.

List indexed in 1996 and file contributed for use in USGenWeb Project and IDGenWeb Project 
Archives by Pat Roloff of Weiser, Idaho, November 1996.
