Road Officially Named After Baker

It's official- a new road north of Hayden is now named after Vernon Baker, the Congressional Medal of Honor recipient and World War II veteran who lived North Idaho.

The new Vernon J. Baker Boulevard is a frontage road that runs parallel to U.S. Highway 95 between Lancaster and Bentz roads in an unincorporated section of the county. The Coeur d'Alene Press has the details.
