Caldwell, the sixth largest city in Idaho, sits at the heart of Canyon County. Though it’s joined together with the Boise metro area, Caldwell is a truly independent town of entrepreneurs, academics, hard workers, close-knit families, and friendly neighbors.

Caldwell is well known for its many wineries, orchards, and vineyards. It’s also earned a reputation for great schools, thanks to the historic College of Idaho and its many primary and secondary schools. Inquiring minds love Caldwell because it houses several museums, art galleries, and a dazzling planetarium. Caldwell has also been many things, from a gold rush settlement to an agricultural center, and its residents are known for their adaptability, grit, and resourcefulness.

Caldwell is friendly to business, education, and agriculture. But, most importantly, it’s friendly to families and neighbors. Although Caldwell is growing, it still retains the charm of a small town. Its vibrant downtown and beautiful city parks hint at great things to come but, for those wanting a quiet Idaho life, Caldwell is an oasis in the desert.

At CBH Homes, we love everything about Caldwell-- its rich history, its vibrant arts and culture, its great quality of life, and the people who make this great city what it is.

The refuge was established in 1909, and serves as a home to a huge variety of plants and animals.

Joe Albertson, founder of Albertsons grocery stores, was raised in Caldwell, ID, and spent most of his life here. Albertsons is North America’s second largest supermarket chain, with nearly 3,000 stores and 250,000 employees. Albertson was also a noted philanthropist. His charitable foundation, the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation, has given more than $240 million to Idaho’s communities, and particularly focuses on education.

What Opportunities Are There to Grow and Learn?

Ever since it was founded in the late 1800s, education has been at the very heart of Caldwell’s community goals. Caldwell is home to five secondary schools and six elementary schools. College of Idaho, one of the state’s premier four year educational institutions, was founded in 1891. C of I has produced three governors, seven Rhodes Scholars, and four NFL players.

College of Idaho

C of I is a private liberal arts college, and the oldest such institution in the state, which hosts around 1000 students annually. It offers humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences programs, and its PEAK Curriculum allows students to graduate with one major and three minors in four years.

College of Idaho offers a diverse campus-- 13 percent of its students are international, 30 percent are Hispanic, African-American, Asian-American, American Indian or multi-ethnic, and students come from 22 different states. C of I also features several robust athletics programs, an active Greek life, and an array of student clubs.

C of I also features a high standard of campus living. Most students live on campus, and both outdoor and career-focused clubs and activities are available. A variety of dormitories, apartments, and rental houses are available to students, as well.

College of Idaho also houses the Orma J. Smith Museum of Natural History in its William Judson Boone Science Hall. It’s one of C of I (and Caldwell as a whole)’s biggest claims to fame, as it is the only natural history museum in southwest Idaho. The museum contains many important regional artifacts and collections, which it regularly loans to museums around the world. The Whittenberger Planetarium, beloved by astronomy enthusiasts across the Treasure Valley, is also hosted on C of I’s Caldwell campus.

College of Idaho offers many fantastic educational opportunities for students, and is considered one of the best schools in the state. For Caldwell residents, it’s a prized institution.

Where To Find The Best Eats & Drinks?

Since it’s a longstanding city with real history, and because of the soil and landscape around the area, Caldwell plays host to many excellent eateries and wineries.

You can find plenty of great restaurants within easy driving range of any of our CBH Homes communities in Caldwell. And all of our communities are a short drive away from the Sunnyslope Wine Trail, which houses over a dozen of Caldwell’s excellent vineyards, wineries, and orchards.

Fun Fact

The land in around the area of what is now Caldwell was once a hotspot for trading fairs, or rendezvous. Indigenous tribes from north Idaho, the west coast, and even Colorado, would come to the area to meet with each other and trade goods.

What Are The Can't Miss Things To Do?

There are plenty of exciting things to do in most Treasure Valley cities, and Caldwell is no exception. Caldwell, though, has more exciting things to do than most cities of its size. Caldwell’s penchant for fun and activities is not often talked about in the rest of the Valley, but Caldwell residents won’t mind letting you in on their secrets. Purple Sage, Caldwell’s municipal golf course, is adored by the community. The Oddfellows Museum, Glen L. and Ruth Evans Gem and Mineral Collection, Caldwell Train Depot Interpretive Center and Museum, and Rosenthal Gallery of Art are enough to keep curious families entertained all year round. There are also a wealth of annual festivals and regular outdoor activities. Caldwell may not be the biggest city around but, when you’re here, you’re never bored.

Canyon County Fair

The Canyon County Fair, held every year in July, is a favorite activity for Treasure Valley residents. It features all of your fair and carnival favorites-- carnival rides and games, fried food, face painting, a trade show expo, local art, a petting zoo, and live music. Plentiful parking and affordable prices keep the Canyon County Fair in the limelight, and its dedication to country music and Americana make it a can’t-miss event for music lovers.

Caldwell Night Rodeo

Each and every summer, the Caldwell Night Rodeo lights up the city of Caldwell. CNR has been going for over 80 years, and is one of the longest-running events in Canyon County. It commonly draws over 45,000 people, is listed among the nation’s top 20 professional rodeos, and is one of the top 5 large outdoor rodeos in the USA. Notably, CNR was the first lighted night time rodeo in the Pacific Northwest. It’s a family-friendly event with tons of bronco-bucking fun, but the good doesn’t end there. CNR returns at least $300,000 of its proceeds to scholarships, community groups, and charitable organizations every year.

The Whittenberger Planetarium, located on C of I’s campus, is cherished by space and science enthusiasts across the Treasure Valley. The planetarium features a 24-foot dome and seats 50 people, and its dazzling projection shows draw thousands of people each year. If you and your family are interested in the secrets of the stars, the Whittenberger Planetarium should be on your to-do-list.

Fun Fact

Paul Revere, frontman for legendary rock n roll/garage rock band Paul Revere and the Raiders, owned several restaurants in Caldwell before committing to music full time. The Raiders are one of Idaho’s most beloved bands, and had several charting hits in the 1960s and 70s.

While it’s growing quickly and has all the modern amenities of a big city, Caldwell retains its small town feel and pioneer spirit. We love Caldwell and all of our CBH Homes communities in the city. Our neighbors are respectful, kind, helpful, and full of entrepreneurial grit. Caldwell is perhaps the Treasure Valley’s best-kept secret, which is why new residents flock there every year to embrace its small city charm.
