Joseph Fisher almost a 100 years ago decided that the junction of the St. Maries and St. Joseph rivers would be a good place for a sawmill. There was lots of timber and he chose the spot because there was good transportation. St Maries would become a main transport for the timber in the area. As the transportation improved and so did the distance that logs could be economically transported to the mills of the area. After the turn of the century, the city became incorporated. Two larger mills had been built and the steamboats which plied the St. Joe and Coeur d'Alene Lake provided cheap, rapid transportation. The coming of the transcontinental Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad in 1909, plus the opening of the Coeur d'Alene Indian Reservation to homesteading provided stimuli for further growth in the first decade and a half. The Milwaukee Road pushed a branch line south and east to Elk River and numerous narrow gauges logging railroads criss-crossed the area.
