If you are in southwest Caldwell, you really need to visit the Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge which is one of the oldest refuges in the National Wildlife Refuge System. Early settlers to this area found that herds of elk and deer would come down from the mountains every winter to eat the abundant grasses and drink from the many springs in this low-lying area. Because of this, the settlers named it Deer Flat.
This is a desert area with fertile land but lacked water except for the rivers, so settlers initially built their settlements by the rivers so that they had access to water to irrigate their crops. While Boise was the closest large settlement when the traffic started to slow on the Oregon Trail, which passed just to the north of the refuge, more and more people stopped at this promising place to build their homesteads.
Lake Lowell, a very popular recreational site today, was created as an irrigation reservoir to help land owners in this arid area. Originally called the Deer Flat Reservoir, eventually, it was renamed for J.H. Lowell, a landowner who was instrumental in getting the reservoir built. Boating, fishing, and swimming are very popular activities in the lake, and because of the presence of the National Refuge, this area is also popular with birdwatchers and hikers. Hunting is also a popular activity in this area.
Our Memories Indian Creek Museum, is located at 1122 Main Street in Caldwell and was started by Dr. Archie and Opal Gulley and is a fun way to look back into the daily lives of those who lived in the past with 30 rooms filled with thousands of artifacts which depict various scenes from times gone by. Our memories Museum is one of two historical museums in Caldwell, the other being the Caldwell Train Depot. Although not active as a train station any more, the Caldwell Train Depot played a central part in the development of Caldwell and surrounding areas. Restoration which began in 2002, has provided a delightful Interpretive Center that includes photos and other memorabilia that represent the histories of Caldwell and the western Treasure Valley. You will also find a beautiful Event Center that is available for rent for large group gatherings and other special events.
The College of Idaho, located in the heart of Caldwell, was named no. 2 top small college in the United States. With its goal of academic excellence and its programs to help students graduate in four years, this college is worth a look for those in the market for a college education. The College of Idaho also has much to offer to the community in general. The Whittenberger Planetarium has many things to offer if you are interested in what lies beyond our earth’s atmosphere. With programs for schools, scout, and other groups, homeschoolers, as well as college classes already, the planetarium, extended its outreach by purchasing a portable planetarium which is rented out throughout southwestern, west-central Idaho, Nevada and Oregon.
The college also offers community events including sports, arts and theater, Shakespeare Festivals and youth camps to name a few. They will be opening a state of the art library in 2017. The building will be one of the most architecturally beautiful buildings in Idaho, with a light infused, glass and steel design and a sleek and modern look. One of the most well-known Caldwell events is the Caldwell Night Rodeo. Billed as Idaho’s #1 Large Outdoor rodeo and one of the top 5 large professional outdoor rodeos in the U.S., the Caldwell Night Rodeo is full of excitement. Featuring over 600 world class contestants, this rodeo is an annual must-do for many in the Treasure Valley who join the rest of the full to overflowing crowds, who come to be thrilled by daring cowboys and cowgirls and the ever-entertaining rodeo clowns. You will never leave the edge of your seat when you come to the Caldwell Night Rodeo.
