Frisco was the site of a silver mine, mill and a small town from the 1880s to the early 20th century. Almost nothing remains of the town or the mine. In 1892 a gun battle broke out in Frisco between striking miners and Pinkertons hired by the mine owners. The miners blew up the mill at Frisco, six were killed in the battle and violence spread to other parts of the Coeur d'Alene mining district. Here is a picture of the aftermath of the mill explosion. Frisco is on Burke-Canyon Creek Road between Wallace and Burke.
