Spirit Lake Idaho
Historical Society
Welcome to our history!
News Flash! July 2019 is the beginning of our own Spirit Lake History Museum,
at 6th and Jefferson in the old Lutheran church building:


We need volunteers, help with the rent, and more local artifacts, but....
We had a "soft" opening on July 4th in the afternoon
and will be open this summer as volunteers allow  Email or call/text Brad Sondahl to schedule a private showing 208 818 7282  bsondahl@gmail.com  ....




Although in 1910 Spirit Lake was thought of  as "a Spokane summer resort,"
people have come from all over the country and Canada to enjoy our clear lake and lovely mountains...


We owe a lot to the good water from the Rathdrum Prairie (now renamed Rathdrum Prairie Spokane) aquifer.  This map shows the pale blue valley filled
with gravel that makes up the aquifer, with Spirit Lake feeding it at the upper end...
