CIVIC HISTORY

The Coolin Civic building is approximately 1,250 sq feet.

The land it sits on is owed by Idaho Department of Lands and is leased endowment land.

The building dates back to 1914 when it was constructed in Sandpoint.

It was moved to Coolin in the early 1920's and opened up as the first Priest Lake school.

The school was closed in the 1950's and abandoned as a school house.

In 1961 it was opened as a priest lake Community Building.

The building was supported by the Grange until 1960 when the Coolin Civic Organization (CCO) took over the building.

In 1996 Bonner County School District gave the building to Coolin Cavanaugh Bay Fire Protection District. the CCO has leased the building from Coolin Fire since.

there is a chance the leased land will be auctioned by the state.
