NAMPA, IDAHO -There is a reason the city came up with this slogan and why the community voted in favor of it. The people of Nampa are very proud of their small town. Although the third largest city in the state of Idaho, the laid-back pace and friendliness of the residence helps it keep its small-town feel. And Nampa has a lot that it is proud of.

RAILROAD

Let’s first start with their history. Nampa began its life in the early 1880s when the Oregon Short Line Railroad built a line from Granger, Wyoming, to Huntington, Oregon, which passed through Nampa. As the Oregon Short Line railroad originally bypassed Boise, Nampa had the fanciest railroad depot in the area.

This brings us to the Nampa Train Depot Museum. This grand historic building sits in the center of Downtown Nampa. Saved by a group of citizens in 1972 from demolition, the Nampa Train Depot Museum features exhibits on Nampa railroad history, antiques, souvenirs and more.

It’s the reason Idaho is the fastest-growing state in the country. Boise has a lot of things going for it: an urban/metropolitan economic and educational base, affordable cost-of-living, an extraordinary business-friendly environment, four mild and distinct seasons, and plenty of public wilderness that allows a lifetime of weekend adventures.
