About the Historic P&IN Depot
The Pacific & Idaho Northern Railway (P&IN) reached north from Weiser, Idaho into the picturesque beauty of Meadows Valley. New Meadows’ heritage began in earnest with the grand opening of the depot in 1911.
The graceful brick Italianate style depot also housed corporate railroad offices. It continues to be the largest historic building in New Meadows and in 1978 was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The first major work on the building began in 2002 when structural work, new roof and the 22’ extension of the Freight Room on the south side of the building was completed. The Freight Room was open for public use in 2005. In 2012, the main Lobby, Ladies Waiting Room, and Ticket Agents Office were restored utilizing as much original material as possible and are now bright and welcoming rooms.
It is through years of hard work by the membership who put on fundraisers, generous donations by members and the public, grants and benefactors that the restorations have been possible to bring this beautiful historic building back to public use.
