The Northern Pacific Depot was constructed in 1901 with unique brick transported from China and concrete panels made from mine tailings. In 1986, due to the construction of I-90, the building was moved approximately 200 feet across the Coeur d'Alene River to its current location. The moving of the Depot is celebrated every year in May, the day before Mother's Day, with the Depot Day Classic Automobile Show.
The Northern Pacific Railroad Depot Museum is open seasonally from April through October.
The château style depot, which houses the museum and gift shop, has been a focal point of the grand architecture and historical heritage of Wallace. In 1976, while still in business as a railroad station, the depot was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
