Inscription.  Established November 4, 1842, by Father Nicolas Point, S.J.
Eagerly sought by the Coeur d'Alene Indians, the Black Robed missionaries supervised the building of a log cabin, and in the spring, began to teach "the mysteries of plowing and planting." Soon two-thirds of the tribe were baptized. But floods gave trouble here, and in 1846 the mission moved north to Cataldo.
 
Erected by Idaho Department of Transportation. (Marker Number 42.)
