A group of nearly 30 standing at the first official weather station of Seeley Lake. Seeley Lake Historical Society tour guide Ron Cox said the Weather Rock, which is now gone but the sign remains (hanging in the Douglas fir tree in the upper right of the photo and just south of the Laundromat), was 100 percent accurate. "When you saw snow on that rock it was snowing, when the rock was wet it was rainy, when the rock was dry it was sunny and when you couldn't see the rock it was either foggy or nighttime," said Cox. The sign has been there at least 50 years.

SEELEY LAKE - The Seeley Lake Historical Society sponsored their first historical walking tour of downtown Seeley Lake Oct. 13. Attendees learned about the history of the area and many of the historical businesses that made Seeley Lake's downtown what it is today. Many stories were shared by tour guide Ron Cox and others who have been coming to Seeley Lake since the 1930s.

Look for these stories in the upcoming weeks as a historical spotlight.
