Keyser House Museum

Location: 301 Montgomery Street, Priest River
Phone: (208) 448-2721
Built in the late 1800s, the now restored Keyser House Museum is reputed to be the first timber frame home constructed in Priest River. Today, the house is home to the Priest River Chamber of Commerce as well as an interesting museum dedicated to preserving and celebrating the area’s long relationship with the logging industry. Exhibits include pioneer antiques, historical artifacts from the town’s early logging days, pictures and videos illustrating life as a logger, and a timber educational center. The museum also displays a Diamond Match Company boat once used to haul workers on log drives down the Priest and Pond Oreille Rivers. Exhibits change quarterly, and the museum is open 8 AM to 4 PM Monday through Friday during the summer with varying weekend hours.
