: Hi Karen. The closest ghost to "Kettle Falls" in the NE appears to be Bossburg, about 14-15
: miles north on Wa 25, and just north of present
: Evans. After that, further up the road is North-
: port, which is about 20 miles west of "Metaline
: Falls", in the extreme NE. Between these two,
: was a place called Leadpoint, about 7-8 miles
: east of Northport off of secondary road. The
: only other ghost (in my opinion) in that area is
: Lost Creek, which was about 5 miles south of
: present Tiger on Wa 31. If I had to guess, I'd
: have to go with Leadpoint. Sorry that's all I have. Bob S.

: The old origional Kettle Falls was abandon when they built Grand Coulie Dam. The residents just picked up and left to the town of Meyers Falls and baisicly took it over. The present day K.F. is actually Mayers Falls and the old gost town down by the lake is all thats left of Kettle.

: Now the site is a park, broken sidewalks, steps that lead noware, streets that go int the lake and the occaisional fire hidrant and sewer cover out in the middle of a park.
