Long Description:
On June 1, 1871, Frederick Post made a deal with Seltice--a prominent coeur d'Alene Indian leader--to obtain more than 200 acres of Spokane River land to start a mill here.

They recorded this land cession on a prominent rock adjacent to Post Falls. This incription can still be seen from here. Post's sawmill located at an important hydroelectric site now used for a power plant led to development of a townsite at Post Falls.
