Best Local Architectural Treasure

Boise Train Depot

Readers' Picks

Passenger trains stopped chugging through the 89-year-old Union Pacific depot on the Boise Bench in 1997, but the graceful Spanish-style building has remained a community hub. Operated by the Boise Parks and Rec Department as a public meeting space and historical site, its Klatt Gardens and koi pond are an almost constant site of wedding and senior high-school photo shoots, as well as a big draw for lovers of trains, architecture and stellar views of the downtown skyline. parks.cityofboise.org
