Coeur d'Alene Sea-Wall / Storm-Wall
The Coeur d'Alene storm-wall / sea-wall was assembled for two days
for an inspection.
According to long time resident and city worker the wall was
partially assembled up in the 1970's during high water on Lake Coeur
d'Alene to block the walk ways to the beach. The last time the wall
was fully assembled was in the 1940's
The wall stretches from North Idaho College to the Museum next to
the Coeur d'Alene City Park and Beach. The only stretch not put up
was next to the museum where the railroad lines used to run.
Other local residents joked that it was to stop an attack of the
Fort Grounds area from the Lake to a FEMA test of using the Fort
Grounds as a enclosed camp.
