Kettle Falls Hotel and Kettle Falls are a remote spot on the
Minnesota-Canadian border that has a history spanning several hundred years.
Native American Indians
fished for sturgeon at the falls since the early 1700's. Kettle Falls Hotel is open from May thru mid October.
French Voyageurs portaged their 26 foot canoes and packs of fur around the falls. Gold miners took steamers from here to Rainy Lake's gold fields in the 1800's. Loggers brought millions of logs through the dam in the early part of the century.
The Kettle Falls Hotel was constructed in 1910 by timber baron, Ed Rose but was reputedly financed by Madame Nellie Bly. The hotel was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
The boundary between the U.S. and Canada runs through the middle of the Kettle Falls Dam.
