    Description

    Imperial Size Photograph of Fort Larwai, Idaho Indian Sanitorium ca 1890s - Troops were assigned to the Lapwai Valley in response to the gold rush. The fort was in use from 1862 to 1885. It was here that General Oliver 0. Howard met with the leaders of Nez Perce non-treaty bands on May 3, 1877, as they made one last attempt to remain on their land. The Northern Idaho Indian Agency, originally located at Spalding, was relocated to Fort Lapwai in 1904. Fort Lapwai was converted into a government Indian school and then into a tuberculosis sanitorium with a hospital, boys' and girls' dormitories, and a school.

    This birds-eye view of Fort Lapwai, Idaho taken by unknown photographer depicts the Sanitorium as it stands in the 1890's. Written on glass plate before printing "Fort Lapwai Indian Sanitorium Lapwai. Ida." Measures approximately 10" x 8".
