BlackBird at the Depot
North Idaho born Karen Rohn is the drive behind BlackBird at the Depot. With an eye for design, a feel for funky, and a spirit we can only call creative as heck, Karen's doors are open Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm. Part art gallery, part local hub, part gift shop with a vintage vibe. Visitors should plan for time to tour the WI&M Museum and entire Depot building as well.
The Historic WI&M Depot
Owned and operated by the Washington, Idaho and Montana History Preservation Group, the Depot has a box car stage, portable dance floor and a rentable Freight Room event venue. It's a great place to hold an event and with rent at $65 per event, a darn good deal. Call and leave a message at 208-875-1357. Come check out the museum and stunning restoration work.
.With a population of under one thousand, many families that live here have done so for generations. The timber industry still helps keep supper on the table in many homes. There are no stop lights and every year moose hang out in town, looking for the peace we all take for granted here. It's a place BlackBird calls home.
A Company Town in North Ida
BlackBird found it's home in the arms of the WI&M Depot over 10 years ago. It's been a long road, sometimes finding us apart, but our hearts have always stayed linked. At over 100 years old, this old building has some stories to tell.
Gifts & Local Artists
Thursday through Saturday, 10 am til 4 pm. Open for special events at the Depot and when things are rockin in town, BlackBird owner Karen Rohn does her best to live the creative life while keeping a store front. Stop in for a visit. You'll be glad you did.
