Boise Depot turns 90

The Boise Depot is turning 90. The public is invited to celebrate with free tours, healthy snacks and a visit to the bell tower of the iconic building from 11 a.m to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 19, at 2603 W Eastover Terrace.

The former Union Pacific railroad station opened in 1925 to much fanfare. The depot is now operated by Boise Parks and Recreation. It’s open to the public from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays and Mondays.

The first 200 visitors on Sunday will receive a train whistle. Attractions include the Big Mike locomotive and train memorabilia, a photo booth (dress 1920s-style!) and guest book.
