Northern Pacific Depot Railroad Museum
219 6th Street
Wallace, Idaho 83873
Voice: 208-752-0111

The elegant chateau styled depot, which houses the two story museum, was built at the turn of the century with unique brick transported from China and concrete panels made from mine tailings. Railroads have been an integral part of the mining district since 1887. In 1976, while still in business as a railroad station, the depot was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A decade later, after the station closed, it was moved 200 feet to make way for the completion of Interstate 90. The celebrated move, rehabilitation and conversion to a museum cost nearly two-thirds of a million dollars.



Information about the Northern Pacific Depot Railroad Museum was provided by the City of Wallace
