Post Falls City

Post Falls City Hall is located at 408 North Spokane Street, Post Falls, ID 83854; phone: 208-773-3511.

The city is named for Frederick Post who emigrated from Germany and, in 1871, built a lumber mill along the Spokane River.

Post Falls as Described in 1937 [1]

Post Falls is a small lumbering and fruit-packing town on the Spokane River. A half mile south is the Post Falls Dam, which impounds the river and delivers power to the eastern part of the Inland Empire. Nearby is Hauser Lake, a beautiful jewel in a deep forest of evergreens ... a favorite resort in northern Idaho. Fishing in the lake is fair; and large flocks of wild ducks, making their summer home here, remain late enough in the fall to be caught by the hunting season.
