Long Description:
Post Falls is named after Frederick Post, a German immigrant who constructed a lumber mill along the Spokane River in 1871 on land he purchased from Andrew Seltice, Chief of the Coeur d'Alene Tribe. The purchase of the land is preserved in a pictograph on a granite cliff in Treaty Rock Park. (Source: wikipedia)

Post carved his name and the date in the rock to acknowledge the agreement. There are also pictographs on the rock done in red ochre. (Source: (visit link)

The pictographs at Treaty Rock are covered by a plexiglass to protect them against vandalism.

The pictograph is hard to photograph because of the reflection on the plexiglass, but a very clear picture is available at (visit link)
