Fort Sherman was established (named after General William Techumseh Sherman of Civil War fame – who was the Provost Marshall at Fort Coeur d’Alene) and the town grew around the fort, the pier that paddle-wheelers and pleasure boaters used and the timber workers It was not until the discovery of gold in 1883 on Prichard Creek that many settlers arrived in the area.
Steamboat traffic began to flourish on Lake Coeur d'Alene in 1889 when lakes and rivers were used to move supplies to mining and lumber camps. The logging industry flourished during the early 1900's.

During this time Coeur d'Alene also became a popular tourist spot as the electric train brought people from Spokane, Washington to enjoy the parks, beaches and excursion boats.
Hayden, Idaho, located just five miles north of Coeur d'Alene, was homesteaded in 1878 by May Heyden. Heyden and good friend John Hager played cards to decide the name of the nearby lake.
