The city of Meridian, named after the Boise meridian, was started by a rather hardy bunch of pioneers looking to carve out a slice of America for themselves. Moving to Meridian in large numbers, the group encountered irrigation trouble when converting the arid expanse into suitable farmland to feed everyone.
In the spirit of Meridian, the community tackled more than that one setback. When the great depression was at its worst, Ada County Dairymen’s cooperative creamery got together to keep everyone fed and their taxes paid. The creamery operated for seven days a week for forty years.
Meridian’s spirit continues today as the population grows. Now the third largest city in Idaho, Meridian is on the verge of a beautiful future. Should you move here, you join a legacy of hardworking, community minded individuals ready to welcome you home.
