About

Caldwell originated as a tiny railroad town in 1883, seven years before Idaho achieved statehood. The Idaho and Oregon Land Improvement Company, an organization closely tied to the Oregon Short Line and Union Pacific Railroads, owned the town site and was responsible for its development. To give Caldwell a promotional push, the general manager and vice president of the Land Company, Robert E. Strahorn, sent to Omaha for a printing press and chose a reporter by the name of William J. Cuddy to publish a local newspaper. The Caldwell Tribune began printing in December 1883. It was a four-page, six-column journal published weekly on Saturdays.
