Post Falls, Idaho: Idaho’s “River City”
The Spokane River once issued unimpeded from Lake Coeur d’Alene, cutting a narrow channel through the rock, wending its way across the Rathdrum prairie. Nowadays, its raw power is held in check by the dam, built in 1906. Q’emlin Park (meaning “throat of the river“) is nestled downstream beneath the dam, where citizens return every season to enjoy the blessings of River life: boating, swimming, floating and fishing.
Post Falls derives its name from its founder, Frederick Post. Post, considered the area’s “father of commercial lumbering”, established the North Idaho lumber industry. His water powered lumber mill harnessed the raw power of this beautiful river as it cascaded over the formerly called“Little Falls”, now dubbed “Post Falls”, in its descent from a more mountainous North Idaho elevation down through the Spokane Valley.
This River is both Journey and Destination. It is the sustaining Life Force of the city that grows and thrives on its verdant banks.
Like the river, Post Falls, “Idaho’s River City”, serves as both Destination and Gateway to North Idaho and beyond. People from all walks of lifehave fallen in love with this place which boasts rich farmland and rugged mountain peaks, abundant wildlife and modern amenities.
Centrally located between Spokane, Washington and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Post Falls is uniquely situated as a launching pad to adventure of all types. Commuters especially love their North Idaho home located close to the rich diversity and opportunity of the Spokane metro area.
If the lumber industry fostered her growth in the early 20th Century, the tourism, manufacturing & medical industries are carrying Post Falls well into the 21st Century and beyond. A number of companies call Post Falls home, including Buck Knives, Cabela’s & Ground Force Manufacturing, to name a few. The Post Falls/Coeur d’Alene/Spokane area is highly regarded as a national leader in Health Care. Post Falls lays claim as the site of state- of- the- art Northwest Specialty Hospital.
