About Nampa, Idaho
NAMPA, IDAHO -There is a reason the city came up with this slogan and why the community voted in favor of it. The people of Nampa are very proud of their small town. Although the third largest city in the state of Idaho, the laid-back pace and friendliness of the residence helps it keep its small-town feel. And Nampa has a lot that it is proud of.
Let’s first start with their history. Nampa began its life in the early 1880s when the Oregon Short Line Railroad built a line from Granger, Wyoming, to Huntington, Oregon, which passed through Nampa. As the Oregon Short Line railroad originally bypassed Boise, Nampa had the fanciest railroad depot in the area.
This brings us to the Nampa Train Depot Museum. This grand historic building sits in the center of Downtown Nampa. Saved by a group of citizens in 1972 from demolition, the Nampa Train Depot Museum features exhibits on Nampa railroad history, antiques, souvenirs and more.

Hello, I’m Rosemary Nelson with Mountain Realty. I’m excited you have stopped here today. I hope that I can share my passion for Idaho with you.
Owning property in Idaho for over 20 years, my dream was also to live here in this beautiful state. That dream came true in 2017. I have a successful real estate career, previously in Orange County, California, and now a licensed agent with Mountain Realty.
I would love the opportunity to share my Idaho experience with you. Even if you are just looking or researching at this time, I would love to help. My knowledge of the area, dedication to guiding you, and real estate expertise will help you navigate the area that would best fit you and your family’s needs.
Until then, I’m off to run around beautiful Lake Lowell in Nampa (check it out my social media video) with my four-legged girls – Lucy Lou and Nova.
