Nell Shipman Point

Nell Shipman, silent screen actress, writer, and producer, along with her movie crew and “zoo” of wild animals, spent four years at the north end of Priest Lake making silent movies. She built a movie camp called “Lionhead Lodge” during the winter months of 1921-1922. Shipman Point, at Lionhead State Park, was dedicated in her memory in 1977.
