“Enjoyed the Snake Pit Restaurant and Bar”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Great atmosphere, food is average, beer good, worth the stop! Historical place! It's a great place to go after a bike ride on the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes in North Idaho.

“Ultimate "Historic Junk" Collector Display”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We stopped at the SpragPole on our way over Thompson Pass as we had heard several recommendations in Mullan and Wallace, Idaho. We found it to be the largest collection of miscellaneous "historic" stuff we had ever seen: like a typical small town "museum" display of a few old dresses, magazines, keys, bottles, etc., of modest local connection, only a million times bigger. Toward the back of the connected rooms are some newer displays, nicely done, that interpret a little of the local history. Otherwise, just shelf after shelf after shelf after shelf (etc.) of old stuff. Worth a peak if you are passing through.

Reviewed 7 August 2013 via mobile

What a collection of glassware, carvings, mining, home goods, just a real interesting place to enjoy. Connected to a local eating stop, and step back in time!

“Love This Place”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

A museum composed of stuff somebody collected, mostly old mining stuff. This town always felt like it was lost in time and nobody cared. All the piled up rock around the creekbed shows massive amounts of mining as its legacy. A fun afternoon and a scenic drive to get there.

Reviewed 17 July 2013

This is a collection of collections. There's 50's political buttons, refrigerator magnets, various bullets on a board, firearms, a 119' hand carved wooden chain, bunches of carved elephants, Scotty dogs, and cows. replicas of period rooms, cooking tools, the story of a Pulaski and a Sprag Pole. Logging, Mining, Fire Service, and small town life are here to see. Eclectic and Fun !
