The East Mission Flats Repository in Cataldo, seen on Wednesday, accepts contaminated soil from mine site cleanup. The repository is situated near a historic landmark, the Old Mission, built in the 1850s by Jesuits and ancestors of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe.

Gustavus Sohon drew the Cataldo Mission between 1858 and 1862 while traveling with Captain John Mullan.
