Bonner County Historical Museum
The Bonner County Historical Museum is located in view of Lake Pend Oreille in beautiful Lakeview Park. The park has many amenities including picnic areas, a playground, tennis courts, and the Native Plant Society arboretum. Adjacent to Lakeview Park is Memorial Field which has a boat launch and is home to the Festival at Sandpoint every August.
Featured exhibits are From Sunset to Sandpoint: The Photography of Duane “Cap” Davis, Rural Electrification in Bonner County, Selections from the Loren Evenson Collection, and Canoes For The Journey: David Thompson at Boat Encampment in 1811. Other exhibits tell the story of the longest residents of Bonner County, the Kalispell and Kootenai people; and how early residents interacted with the landscape to make livings at farming, logging, and mining.
