Inspection Station (former) – Porthill ID

Description

The historic former U.S. Border Inspection Station (and attendant garage facility) on State Route 1 in Porthill, Idaho was built in 1938 with U.S. Treasury Department funds. Living New Deal believes the structure has been demolished and replaced with a newer facility.

    The original Porthill border station still stands; however, the roadway entering the US has been altered so that traffic no longer passes through it.
