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.
