Sandpoint — Mark Fuhrman Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

It’s easy to be seduced by Sandpoint. It has it all … a picture perfect location on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille, mountains, rivers, a quaint downtown filled with artisans of every persuasion, first rate restaurants, a multitude of cultural activities and just enough funk to make it interesting.

Coldwater Creek originated in Sandpoint. Its mother store is built on top of the Cedar Street Bridge. The interior consists of massive tamarack logs and large windows that allow views of Sand Creek. Click here to view the east entrance.

The Sandy River meanders through downtown. From the shore downstream, Danny snapped this photo of the Cedar Street Bridge.

Restoration of the 1927 Spanish Mission style Panida Theater is something of a community obsession. We paused to view the telegrams and autographed photos from Hollywood legends. Can you name them?

A striking art deco mirror graces the lobby of the Panida.


Downtown is crammed with historic buildings housing art galleries. We especially enjoyed the vintage photos in the Ross Hall Gallery. US Highway 2 runs smack dab through the center of town. The noise is deafening and crossing the street can be darn right hazardous.

Instead of the usual colorful banners, Sandpoint adorns the downtown with exquisite metalwork.
