Boundary County Courthouse Friezes – Bonners Ferry ID

Description

The Boundary County Courthouse is the site of three friezes, all created by Fletcher Martin in 1940 for the Works Progress Administration Federal Art Project (WPA-FAP) and viewable on the front of the courthouse. They are officially untitled but are known by what they depict; “Floating Logs,”  “Harvest,” and “Mining.” Mining, farming, and the timber industry were all “staple industries of the area.” (waymarking.com)
