In 1941, The U.S. government selected a stretch of land on the shores of Lake Pend Oreille to build a new naval base during World War II. Crews poured their hearts, sweat and patriotism into building Farragut Naval Training Stations. Today, all that remains of Farragut are cracked cement foundations. But with archival photos and the memories, the base's glory days come alive again.
