Location of Lewiston, Idaho

Lewiston, Idaho is a city in northern Idaho, at the confluence of the Snake River and the Clearwater River. Its main industry is paper and timber products production at the mill owned and operated by the Potlatch Corporation. Because of its position on the Snake River, Lewiston has the distinction of being Idaho's only seaport, from which barges with timber products and grain are shipped down the river to the Pacific Ocean. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 30,904.

Lewiston is home to Lewis-Clark State College, and is the county seat for Nez Perce County, Idaho.

Immediately across the Snake River from Lewiston is the town of Clarkston, Washington.

Along the much of the Snake River is a system of levees to protect against flooding. Most of the levees are in parks that are maintained by the United States Army Corps of Engineers.

Downtown Lewiston is at the same elevation as the river. Away from downtown in either a northerly or southerly direction, the terrain gains altitude quickly. The south half of town is an area referred to as the Orchards. This area is much higher in elevation than downtown (one of the higher areas in town) and is named for the fruit orchards that previously covered the area. There is little sign of these orchards today.

The odor from the Potlatch paper mill covers most of the downtown area. This odor is mainly contained in the lowest part of the valley; in the Lewiston Orchards area, it is mostly unnoticeable except for the worst days (e.g. when Potlatch is manufacturing cardboard).

In the springtime there is a celebration named the Dogwood Festival. This celebration is named for the abundant dogwood trees that are in fragrant bloom during the festival. During and shortly after the festival these pink blossoms blow through the yards and the streets like drifts of snow.

During the fall there are a number of cottonwood trees that release cotton-like clouds of seeds that blow through the air and streets, blanketing the streets with a snow-like cover.

The town has a large Christmas festival that includes a number of large displays in the downtown area, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce. These displays are typically quite impressive and often attract many visitors.
