History & History Related Items

Coeur D'Alene history:

This area was named after French traders tried to bribe the local Indians with trinkets in exchange for valuable pelts. The Indians were not to be fooled and refused to trade. The trappers thought they were "hard-hearted" and in their language, sharp as an awl. Translated, Coeur D'Alene means "heart of the awl." The area is rich in history. A special tour may be taken in a horse-drawn carriage or on a double-decker bus to see a wide area of the historical landmarks.
