Notes
Survey number HABS ID-45
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-33).
Significance: The building is one of two in Montour associated with the Idaho Northern Railroad. In recent years it was a private residence. / This building is one of two in Montour associated with the Idaho Northern Railroad. It was moved to this site in the 1950's, from an earlier track-side location. It may not have been built in Montour: The Emmitt Index of 17 July 1913 (1:1-2) has a short account, headlined "Move House on Cars," that described the shipping of "a good sized frame building" on a flatcar to Montour, for "use by the railroad company." Given that headline specifies a "house," and the subject of this evaluation is known to have been used as living quarters for railroad employees, it is possible, if not proven, that this building was the subject of the 1913 Index article.
