Post Falls, Idaho was established in 1871 and is located between Coeur d'Alene and Spokane, Washington
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. The city is situated on the Spokane River which winds through town, then runs 225 miles to its confluence with the Columbia at Grand Coulee, Washington.
