Inscription.  Large kilns that produced line from 1904 to 1932 still can be seen by visiting Bayview, two miles from here.
Production of lime f0r nearby mines and Spokane buildings commenced in this area as soon as rail transportation and markets became available. For 14 years after 1887, steamboats hauled lime to a Northern Pacific Railway dock at Hope. When an interurban rail connection reached here in 1911, lime for cement products was exported from Bayview until an economic depression destroyed regional demand for concrete.

Also see . . .  Cooking Lime in Bayview, Idaho -- Spokane Historical. The 1930’s brought an end to the cement plants and lime kilns in the Bayview and Lakeview areas. A combination of a lack of market for agricultural lime, a change in the quality of the limestone from Lakeview, the lack of financial resources to improve plants and the onset of the Great Depression made the cost of lime production too expensive for the small companies.
