CDADave’s Wayback Machine — Templin’s Resort

There isn’t much to feature tonight on the Best of the Local Blogs, so I’m opting for one of CDADave’s Wayback Machine photos. Here, you’ll see Templin’s restaurant, which used to block the view of Lake Coeur d’Alene (between the present clock tower and Independence Point) as you entered downtown southbound off Northwest Boulevard. Once Duane Hagadone seized control of Bob Templin’s hospitality empire in 1983, he renamed Templin’s after the late Fred Murphy, and then he tore it down.
