Sandpoint as described in 1937 [1]

Sandpoint, the seat of Bonner County, is enviably situated on Lake Pend D'Oreille which is fourth of fifth in size of the fresh-water lakes lying wholly within the United States. Formed by the drainage from Flatland Lake in Montana through the Clark Fork River, it has a shoreline of 125 miles and an extreme depth of 1,800 feet. It abounds in trout and whitefish and affords attractive campsites along its shores. This city, served by three railroads, is also the junction of US 195 and State Route 3. Of unusual interest is the Sandpoint Bridge on US 95 at the southern extremity of the city. Though not spectacular in comparison with the great bridges of the world, it nevertheless spans the lake for a distance of two miles.
