Who We Are

Located in Latah County, Deary is a small community of just over 500 nestled at the base of Potato Hill, affectionately called 'Spud Hill' by the locals.  At just over 2900 feet elevation, Deary is a bedroom community to Moscow, Idaho, the home of University of Idaho.  Deary's major employers are logging and forestry related with the Whitepine School District and the Idaho Distance Education Academy(IDEA) adding a number of other jobs.  Deary has a nice complement of small businesses including a grocery store, auto parts store, saw & lawn shop, tire and automotive shop, convenience store, artisan bakery and cheese-making shop, restaurant, bar& grill and a thrift store.
