The Spirit Lake Historical Society and Museum

The Historical Society is in the process of finding a home for a Museum in Spirit Lake.

Panhandle Lumber Company mill

The Picture is from the Marc and Cynthia Kroetch Collection. The Description of the picture is “The Panhandle Lumber Company mill and lumber yard. The picture, taken in the mid 20’s, shows both the sawmill at the right and the huge lumber yard. The Village of Spirit Lake is seen in the background, with the Coeur D’Alene Mountains lurking in the far distance.”

Crane Historical Society in Harrison

Crane Historic Society in Harrison

Our museum is located in the first house built in Harrison - 1891. It was the home of the founder of Harrison, Silas Crane. He convinced President Benjamin Harrison to set aside a 23-acre plot of ground from the Coeurd'Alene Indian Tribe for the townsite. Our museum has a large audio historical collection on cds from the interviews conducted by historical author Bert Russell
