Review for Museum Of North Idaho Inc, Coeur D Alene, ID, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My first contact with what became the Museum of North Idaho was in the mid-1970s when I started doing research for my book on railroads ("Railroads Through the Coeur d'Alenes"), so I was using its services even before the current building was acquired. I have continued to work with the staff there ever since. Dorothy Dahlgren, the director, and the wonderful volunteers have been of never-ending help to me. If it weren't for the director, my long-suffering work (over 35 years) on a book about Lake Coeur d'Alene steamboats would have "died" long ago. She has kept me going. If you have any questions about the area, the staff will do all in their power to help you. If they don't have the answer, they will try to find someone else who can. I have been a member of the Museum for many years, and my family has trusted the Museum as a worthwhile place to donate money, photos and artifacts. If I still lived in Coeur d'Alene (I live in Oregon), I would be a volunteer with much of my free time. I've added a photo of my father, Dr. Bill Wood, donating the steering wheel of the steamer "Flyer" which has been on display at the Museum for years - Carl Krueger on the left accepting for the Museum.
