Logger's Memorial Park, St. Maries Idaho.



This memorial bears the names of over 250 St. Joe area loggers that have lost their lives in the logging industry.

Planning for the memorial began in 1999; actual construction of the site was completed in 2005. The project was funded entirely by donations of materials, money and labor. Spontaneous donations of money and materials exceeded $30,000 without any organized effort to campaign or solicit.

Total cost of construction was $20,000, with a $10,000 reserve for maintenance and improvements. Future improvements may include a bronze statue, interpretive panels, flagpoles, benches and a paved parking area.

The annual botanic display is orchestrated by volunteers from the Benewah County Master Gardeners.
