Back in the year 1863, thousands of prospectors flooded from the west on route to the North, over the course now know as the Wildhorse Trail. This sudden movement had been inspired by the discovery of large amounts of gold in the East Kootenais of British Columbia. In 1864 a man by the name of Edwin Bonner, as an enterprising merchant, constructed the ferry where the trail crossed the broad Kootenai River. Following this, in 1875 Richard Fry leased the business, and despite the change the location retained the name of the original founder, soon thereafter becoming the town know as Bonners Ferry.
Nicely treed, secluded 130 acre property, bordered by Ruby Creek & Deep Creek, with views & several buildable areas! Power & telephone runs the length of the main road (approx. 1 mile) to an established building site with well and septic. An expansive foundation (originally an underground cement house) and smaller log cabin and shop stand ready to be refinished to your liking (a remodel was in process by former owner). A second small hunting cabin & shed stand in a separate remote area of the property. Whether looking for the private seasonal getaway, year round home or development property this is an awesome opportunity with valuable existing improvements.
