Inscription.  On June 1, 1871, Frederick Post made a deal with Andrew Seltice -- a prominent Coeur d'Alene Indian leader -- to obtain more than 200 acres of Spokane River land to start a mill here.
They recorded this cession of land on a prominent rock adjacent to Post Falls. This inscription can still be seen here. Post's sawmill located at an important hydroelectric site now used for a power plant, led to the development of a townsite at Post Falls.
 
Erected by Idaho Department of Transportation. (Marker Number 348.)
