Coeur d’Alene in Idaho is largest city and administrative seat of Kootenai County, located in the northern part of the Idaho Panhandle; it sits alongside Lake Coeur d’Alene and is often referred to as “Lake City” or even abbreviated to CDA. It is interesting to note that, had state boundaries been drawn up along more geographically logical lines; CDA would probably have been part of Washington State – it is only 30 miles away from Spokane in Washington (the nearest major airport to CDA is at Spokane).
A Relatively Small Place
The region was originally explored by fur trading companies and, over time, miners and lumber companies came to the area for its rich resources. In the 1870’s; General Sherman built a fort beside the lake and named it Fort Coeur d’Alene; thus naming the city that slowly grew up around the fort. (Cœur d’Alêne is how the original French fur trappers named the local Indians – “heart of an awl”; possibly because of their hard bargaining attitude).
Until Later In The 20TH Century
Tourism was the catalyst for growth in CDA; from the lake itself to surrounding mountains and Nature Parks; people started coming in numbers to the area. This obviously prompted expansion in the construction industry; both for commercial, tourism related activities and for homes for those employed in the tourism sector.
