We spent a quick weekend in Southern Idaho along the rails. One of our first stops was Rupert, where the old depot is alive and well. The depot is now on the grounds of the Minidoka Historical Society Museum which is well worth a stop. Melissa gave us a full tour and was incredibly helpful, providing us with some additional places to visit in the area with the potential for graffiti. Many thanks Melissa!

The Rupert depot was built in 1906 and was originally part of the Oregon Short Line
