On Facebook, David Townsend noted that Friday was the 10th anniversary of his going to work for the Coeur d’Alene Public Library. Quoth David: “That means we are coming up on 20 years in Coeur d’Alene — newcomers by some folks’ standards. But a milestone in my reckoning. I have never lived continuously anywhere as long. Not even in my hometown.” I beat David to Coeur d’Alene by 5 years. However, I, too, have never lived in a community this long. In fact, I’ve lived in Coeur d’Alene twice as long as I’ve lived anywhere else.
Question (for all but natives): How long have you lived in your Inland Northwest town? Where have you lived the longest in one place?
