Overview

I knew I would share Robert W. Kennicott's memoir one day but wondered if I could keep his voice and those heart-wrenching memories intact and still keep it G-Rated and Lewis County Historical Museum ready? I couldn't. Bob Kennicott didn't grow up in a G-Rated world. He grew up next to the Great Northern Railroad tracks amidst the brothels and saloons of Chehalis, Washington. Although his father, Dr. Guy William Kennicott, founded the Lewis County Hospital and was one of Washington State's earliest doctors, young Robert was never spared the harsh realities of a rugged town caught between brothels and moonshine and loneliness.

I'm honored to finally share this unorthodox treasure with a town I grew to love because a man named Robert Kennicott and his amazing wife, Florence, had a vision beyond the bricks and boardwalks of time and memory. —Jan Pierson
