The Kettle Falls Historical Center interprets the Kettle Falls fishery, which has been described as one of the most important historical sites in the Western United States. The center also intreprets other historical sites, including the historic St. Pauls Mission, Fort Colville and the expeditions into this region by legendary trapper and explorer David Thompson.

St. Pauls Mission, and views of the former sites of the the Falls and Fort Colville (now under water), are points of interest along our short interpretive trail. Also look for the old portage road, historic cemetary, and ancient harpoon sharpening stone. The Kettle Falls Historical Center believes the history of the Kettle Falls area must be preserved. The Center seeks members with the same belief.

Our Mission
The Kettle Falls Historical Center is a community based, nonprofit organization which preserves and interprets the heritage and cultures of the diverse peoples of Kettle Falls. Our focus spans prehistory to the creation of Lake Roosevelt. We serve our community residents and visitors through educational and recreational programs and exhibits, and the nurturing of cultural activities which reflect our focus.
