In 1935, the Civilian Conservation Corps constructed a log cabin to serve as a headquarters for the Kaniksu National Forest Ranger Station. Today, this well-preserved cabin serves as a museum and visitor center for the Priest Lake area. Numerous articles and exhibits illustrate the region’s rich heritage. The history of Native Americans, missionaries, trappers, homesteaders, loggers, and miners is presented, and the cabin’s living room and kitchen have been furnished with 1930s décor typically found in area homes at that time. For those more interested in wildlife and the region’s vegetation, the center also offers exhibits on numerous animals and rare plant species populating the region. The museum is open 10 AM to 4 PM Tuesday through Sunday from June to Labor Day.
