Named after the picturesque meadows where it sits, New Meadows is located at the junction of Idaho Highways 55 and 95.
Settlement began in 1864 and in 1878 it was called Whites Mail Station. In 1910, the north terminal the Pacific and Idaho Northern Railroad was planned to be located at Meadows, but due to a dispute between community officials and the president of the company, the line was built one and half miles east and named New Meadows. Edgar Heigho, the president, was instrumental in designing the town’s layout and several streets are named in honor of his wife and children.

However, due to a dispute between community officials and the president of the company, Edgar M. Heigho, the line was built one and a half miles east of Meadows and the place was named “New Meadows.” Heigho was instrumental in designing the town’s layout. Several streets are named after his wife and children. The post office was established in 1911.
Today New Meadows continues to thrive. The town is home to a US Forest Service Ranger Station, has a fire department, ambulance and emergency medical technicians, airport services, and several businesses which serve not only the local population, but also travelers, tourists, and sportsmen as well.
