Community effort for project


August 1, 2019


I wish to extend my personal thanks to everyone who supported the Road to the Buffalo interpretive signs project. The final sign is now in place. It is because of your generosity that this project was completed.

Peggy Johnson and the Women for a Better Sanders County worked tirelessly to put together a fundraiser in Noxon. The funds that were raised qualified for a matching grant from the Montana Office of Tourism (MOT).

Donna Anderson and the Noxon Senior Citizens were designated as the grant managers. As each phase of the sign project was completed, Donna oversaw the payment processing and distributions of the funds received from MOT.

The Sanders County Commissioners invested their time and effort from the beginning of this project, starting with the approval of the buffalo road sign to the installation of the highway markers along Highway 200.

Rosemary Caye and the Kootenai Culture Committee gave their approval for the project and materially contributed to the sign development. Without backing from the Kootenai Culture Committee this project would not have been possible.

And, there are those of you who served on the sign committee, wrote letters of support, and donated your hard earned dollars. Your contributions were essential.

My final thanks is to my husband Carl who wrote a book about David Thompson, our town’s namesake. Had he not written the book, I would never have known about the Saleesh Road to the Buffalo, nor would the idea to mark the route have ever occurred to me.

To all of you, thank you again for your support and encouragement.


Linda Haywood, Thompson Falls
