As a member of the Northwest Outdoor Writers Association, I travel a bit and love to participate in outdoor activities.I’ve stayed at historic venues as well as modern glitzie places. But nowhere was I treated better than my stay at the Wallace Inn. Overseen by the Prime Minister himself, Rick Shaffer, it is a blend of modern amenities and historic presence. Just a few blocks from the center of downtown historic Wallace, it offers a nice restaurant, clean rooms, as well as a pool with a view and conference rooms for business meetings. If you choose the Wallace Inn, you will not be disappointed.
The town of Wallace is listed on the National Historic Register. I don’t mean a few buildings…I mean the entire town. From mining offices, the handsome Northern Pacific depot, the bordello building, to mercantiles, the whole town is listed. Historically, Wallace was and is the silver mining center of the universe, and they let you know it. In town there is a mining museum and nearby a mine tour, complete with a trolley shuttle service. For those whose interests differ, there are hiking and biking trails, fly fishing spots, kayaking, and almost weekly festivals. The famous Route of the Hiawatha is a great place to start. The annual Blues Festival is a must!
As for me, I’ll be back!
