The town had been developed as the lumbering and mining town for a long time and its developing history had been always with its close relationship with the transcontinental railroad in this country. The name Sandpoint is from its beautiful sand on the lake shore. The Empire Builder, Amtrak express has been stopping at this town every mid night though the town has only 6,000 population.
