The Silver Valley, Native American History and Glacier National Park

On the trail of Captain John Mullan, Jesuit Priests,
Native American Tribes, and Silver Prospectors

Experience the beauty and history of North Idaho and Western Montana. Many of the early settlers to North Idaho came because of the lure of Gold and Silver; some became extremely rich and stayed to help build the Inland Northwest. The Great Northern Railroad opened the way to Glacier National Park and helped expose the endless opportunities in the Pacific Northwest for settlers.
