the official website of the city of Genesee

Welcome to Genesee!

Genesee is a quiet community nestled in the fertile rolling hills and prairie of Idaho’s Palouse country, half way between Moscow and Lewiston. Some of our citizens work in local business, while others are employed in the nearby communities.

The city is well managed and has a superb school system. Catholic, Lutheran and Community churches are important social as well as spiritual centers. The Senior Citizen Center, located between City Hall and the Library, is home to many functions and includes an active American Legion Post downstairs. The Masonic Lodge and the Genesee Civic Association have both been active for many years.

With universities and colleges in Moscow, Lewiston, Pullman and Clarkston, diverse cultural and educational opportunities abound. For the outdoor enthusiast, fantastic hunting and fishing are within a few miles of the city. The Clearwater and Snake River near Lewiston are world famous for steelhead and Salmon fishing and Dworshak Reservoir, about 60 miles to the east, provides access to unlimited outdoor recreation.

For those who don’t miss the hustle and bustle of a big city, Genesee is a wonderful place to raise a family and to enjoy life.

Support Energy Freedom!

Dear Congressmen,

Senator Joe Doe and Rep. Jogn Smith are standing up for everyday Americans and our nation’s future. They introduced S. 2170 and H.R. 4286 respectively, the American Energy Renaissance Act. Please support this important legislation.

For too long, bureaucrats and politicians have treated our energy security and our prosperity as bargaining chips for political gain. That’s wrong, and un-American.

The American Energy Renaissance Act frees America from ridiculous and harmful regulations and frees our markets.

This legislation will make energy affordable for American families struggling in the economy, help pay down our debt, and move us away from foreign oil.

I urge you to support this common sense legislation. Please co-sponsor it and advocate for its passage.
