Inscription.  Records indicate that a least forty Coeur d'Alene Indians lived in permanent residence at the Mission site. The village was make up of a mixture of log cabins, Native American mat lodges and an occasional tipi.
E.S. Glover in his diary of 1875 states that the huts are nearly all a square pen roofed over with "shakes,: a door mat nearly two feet above the ground to prevent pigs from coming in and a stone fireplace at the other end. This village was located on the north slope facing upwards toward the church.
