This Place Where You Walk and its History: The Coeur d’Alene Tribe; Fort Sherman; and Early Days of North Idaho College & Coeur d’Alene with historian and author Robert Singletary will be presented on Wednesday, October 17th at 11:30AM-12:30PM in the Edminster Student Union Building, Lake Coeur d’Alene Room on the NIC campus. The lecture will include historic photographs of the present NIC site. Three of the fort’s original buildings are still in use, and the presence of the Coeur d’Alene Indians can still be traced through the names of the campus buildings and the beach. Singletary is probably the leading historian on the Coeur d’Alene area and his talks have led to an increased interest in its history. The lecture is free and the public welcome.
