Kettle Falls history:

"Sources of the River" by Jack Nisbet, "A Brief History of Kettle Falls" and more.
Kettle Falls has 9000 years of documented human history. Before the Grand Coulee Dam was built on the Columbia River Kettle Falls was the second most important salmon fishing site on the Columbia. Hundreds for Native Americans traveled from as far as 400 miles away to gather, fish and trade at the falls twice a year for hundreds of years. Explorer David Thompson (working for the North Western Trading Company)came to Kettle Falls June 19, 1811. A few days after the beginning of the first salmon runs for the summer. When the European settlers started to come into the area the Hudson Bay Company built Fort Colvile in 1826. The trading post operated until the late 1860's. Chinese placer miners out numbered European settlers for a while in the area. Kettle Falls, is still rich in ethnic diversity and natural and cultural history. From Ice Age sheets covering the land to Ice Age Floods ripping away the land, there are fossils to be found, petrified wood that has been eroded out of the landscape and more Bald Eagles nesting than almost anywhere else in the lower 48.
