Caldwell has always been a hub: Long before settlers arrived, Caldwell was a meeting place for Native Americans, and later fur traders, thanks to its prime location between the Inland and Pacific Northwest. Today, Caldwell is once again drawing people from all over, this time to live along the revitalized Indian Creek, go to school, or seek a better lifestyle.
Caldwell is home to the College of Idaho, a well-respected private college, and its population is more diverse than many other areas of the Treasure Valley. Like much of the valley, Caldwell is growing rapidly, and growth has brought new businesses and restaurants. But Caldwell still retains its standing as one of the most historic towns in the state, with the Steunenberg Residential Historic District and a beautifully restored landmark train depot.
Only 30 minutes away from Boise, Caldwell offers access to the city’s amenities while offering its own charm and slower pace of life.
