Coeur d'Alene History Tours

Posted on Fri, Jun 22, 2012 at 12:44 PM

Most people can't tell you much about the town that they live in. How old the buildings are around the city, what battles have been fought there, what historical figures have once walked past where their house now stands - all lost tidbits of information. Knowing the story behind where you live isn't "with the times" for many people.

Robert Singletary, a Coeur d'Alene historian, does not have this mindset. Praised by True West Magazine for his contributions toward preserving the city's past, helping Coeur d'Alene earn an award by the magazine, Singletary gives locals living history presentations through his tours throughout Old Fort Sherman and Historic Downtown. During the hour-to-hour-and-a-half tours, he portrays different characters in order to tell the different and intriguing stories that not many Idahoans have heard before.

Sponsored by the Museum of North Idaho, Singletary as Gen. William Carlin, the Commander at Fort Sherman, and Peter Sorensen, a steamboat captain and community leader, leads his audience into enlightenment Tuesday through Saturday beginning at 11 am to 5 pm until mid October for $15 per person.
