Downtown Nampa is rich in history, and our Historic Main Street District has been recognized by the National Register of Historic Places. The Downtown Nampa Historic Walking Tour features many historic Nampa buildings in the downtown area and is available in both a print and digital format. This year, the Walking Tour was updated to be more mobile friendly by the creation of a new mobile app, developed by Mobile Town Guide. In addition, the printed brochure features quick response (“QR”) codes that direct to a web page for downloading the app in both IOS and Android format. Our webpage also contains the links which will take you directly to the Apple ITunes or GooglePlay location for downloading as well. This new app has been funded in part by a Community Local Government (CLG) grant from the Idaho State Historic Preservation Office and by the City of Nampa Arts & Historic Preservation Commission.
The current edition of the Historic Downtown Walking Tour is based in part on the original walking tour and information from the "A Walk Through Time"- Discovering Downtown Nampa by TAG Historical Research and Consulting/abn The Arrowrock Group Inc.
