Kootenai County Jail Museum
The Rathdrum / Westwood Historical Society was incorporated in 1999, with the mission to gather information and items relevant to early Rathdrum history. The society is specifically dedicated to the running and maintaining of the historic Kootenai County Jail Museum, preserving the building while making it available to the public for tours. Within the museum are exhibits including items, tools records and much more. These items have been donated by many people who would like to offer a glimpse into Rathdrum / Westwood’s past. As a society we aim to preserve the heritage of Rathdrum while educating and enlightening the public. We continue to seek information on people and events relevant to the early history of Rathdrum and North Idaho.
Open late May through early September from noon to 5 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
