You asked: What’s going on at the Boise Depot?

One of Boise’s most prominent landmarks isn’t going anywhere.

On Tuesday, we got a question from a reader about work happening at the Boise Depot. City spokesman Seth Ogilve said the work crews were completing regularly scheduled maintenance on the roof and tower. Work crews in bucket trucks were visible from as far away as Downtown Boise.

It is planned to wrap up by the end of the day.

The Boise Depot was built in 1925 in a Spanish architectural style. It was used as a Union Pacific railroad depot until 1971. The City of Boise took over ownership in 1996. It is now used as an event venue for weddings and other gatherings.
