Northern Pacific Depot

Wallace, Idaho 83873, United States

Created By: GarvisTech


Located in downtown Wallace, Idaho, the NP Depot was constructed with bricks originally designated for the terminus depot in Tacoma, Washington and concrete blocks made from mine tailings. On May 10, 1986 the building was moved approximately 200 feet across the Coeur d’Alene River due to the construction of I-90. The short journey took 2 hours, 45 minutes, and 56 seconds. After the move and renovation, the October dedication took place where Idaho Governor, John Evans handed over the NP Depot key to the City of Wallace, then Wallace Mayor Maurice Pellissier turned over the key to Harry Magnuson, Chairman of the Northern Pacific Depot Foundation. The NP Depot project cost reached $588,056.61. The movers of the Depot were Bates Brothers Construction out of Spokane, Washington. The property was entered in the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
