On a bluff overlooking the former Kettle Falls, Mission Point is one of the richest and concentrated points of history in the Pacific Northwest with over 9,000 years of continuous human presence. St. Paul’s Mission, an Indian Jesuit Mission orginally built in 1847 and reconstructed in 1939, stands watch. The point also contains several points including native culture and Fort Colvile, a Hudson's Bay fur trading post.
