Lewiston boasts a tawdry, scandalous history. In 1872, prostitutes Carlotta Felis and Anna Ream appeared in a survey of Nez Perce County's wealthiest residents. To their horror, unsuspecting passersby discovered the bodies of two infants hidden under the old board sidewalk on South Snake River Avenue in April 1913. Headlines of 1924 publicized the conviction of Darrel Thurston for the murder of Lewiston police officer Gordon Harris. Jewell Freng murdered a man over just a few dollars before committing suicide in prison. Historian Steven Branting uncovers the proof of Lewiston's lurid legacy.
