When the Boise Depot first opened in 1925, thousands turned out to see the first transcontinental engine steam into the station. Among its many visitors over the years was President Harry S. Truman, who made a stop at the depot on a tour of the West. Located in the Depot Bench neighborhood, it’s now a go-to venue for meetings and events.

Designed by the New York architectural firm, Carrere, Hastings, Shreve and Lando, the building was owned by Union Pacific Railroad until the early ’90s, when it was purchased and refurbished. Today, the meeting and event space features 10 of its original waiting benches lining the Great Hall, as well as the original Barkalow Brothers Newsstand.

The 3,542-square-foot Great Hall is the Depot’s largest space and can accommodate 300 guests standing or 165 for sit-down events. Along the Great Hall’s ceiling are Spanish trusses, each imprinted with antique locomotives to celebrate the building’s rich history. The Bell Tower and outdoor North Plaza can both be reserved in conjunction with a Great Hall reservation. 

The Lynnwood Convention Center is a premiere event venue located 15 miles north of downtown Seattle. With 34,000 square feet of flexible meeting space that can accommodate large meetings, weddings, galas, seminars, corporate gatherings, product launches and private parties of up to 650, the Lynnwood Convention Center delivers on value, innovation and excellence.
