In 1886, Daniel C. Corbin , Sam T. Hauser, Anton Esler, S.S. Glidden, James
Wardner, and James Monaghan formed the Coeur d’Alene Railway & Navigation
Company. The primary purpose was to connect Northern Idaho from the Coeur d’Alene River to nearby mining regions. The road was leased in 1888 to the Northern Pacific Railroad. The road was later sold to the Northern Pacific after foreclosure in 1897.
Daniel Corbin discovered the Bunker Hill and Sullivan mines in the Coeur d'Alene Mountains of Northern Idaho in 1886. Corbin helped erect the first concentrator at the mine sites. Corbin then built the Spokane Falls & Idaho Railroad and the Coeur d'Alene Railway & Navigation Company, which connected the starting poing point of Spokane with those lead and silver mining districts. Corbin also developed the Spokane Valley Land and Water Company, bringing the Spokane Valley its first irrigation project in 1889.
