Author(s): Molly E Swords
Hotels are often overlooked when studying the settlement of the American Frontier, although they played a pivotal role in shaping the West. Frequently doubling as restaurants and taverns for locals and visitors alike hotels were established to accommodate the numerous settlers, travelers, salesmen and others who headed the call "Go West!" One such hotel, the Pend d’Oreille, in Sandpoint, Idaho is an example of an early nineteenth century hotel that offered accommodations, entertainment, food, drinks and a place to meet for both travelers passing through and the local community. This paper will examine, through the archaeological and historical record, the role the Pend d’Oreille Hotel played in settling Sandpoint, Idaho within the greater landscape of the American Frontier.
