Idaho - Canyon County Historical Society Nampa Depot
Nampa, ID - On May 20th, 2010, The Canyon County Historical Society, in partnership with The National Trust for Historic Preservation, kicked off a capital campaign to preserve and restore the unique and beautiful 1903 Nampa Train Depot. The Nampa Depot is the only depot in southwest Idaho that has not been fully restored.

The goal is to completely restore the depot and turn it into a railroad museum, exclusively." said president Bob Wagner. "We also have a grand plan for the rest of the grounds, including making the caboose and derrick ADA accessible, building a beautiful courtyard that will be a shrine to Nampa's railroad workers, and finally, a new museum building alongside the depot that will house exhibits on Canyon County's rich history, artifact storage, and offices. It will, ultimately, be a downtown attraction that will make all of Canyon County proud.

Idaho - Northern Pacific Depot Railroad Museum
Wallace, ID - Let us take you back to when railroads were king of transportation. As you enter the museum, you step into the re-creation of an early working railroad station.

Exhibits tell the rich history of railroading in the Coeur d'Alene Mining District and the depot itself. Railroads have been at work in the Coeur d'Alene silver mining region since 1887. The last train to service the area (Union Pacific) was July 15th, 1994.

The Northern Pacific Depot was constructed in 1901 with unique bricks from the Olympian Hotel, the original terminus of the transcontinental NPRR in Tacoma. The bricks were manufactured by Gladding McBean Bricks of Lincoln, California. Concrete panels were made from mine tailings. In 1986, due to the construction of I-90, the building was moved approximately 200 feet across the Coeur d'Alene River to its current location. Every year in May we celebrate the anniversary of the Depot's move, the day before Mother's Day, with the Depot Day Classic Automobile Show.
