History of Meridian

  • Meridian’s earliest settlers lived along Five Mile Creek. Here, they enjoyed running water year-round. 
  • Residents opened the first school in 1885. 
  • Citizens incorporated the city of Meridian as a village in 1903. At the time, the population was a mere 200. 
  • In 1897, a creamery emerged, followed by several other dairy-related businesses. Thus, this part of the community’s history is celebrated annually in June.
  • Many early settlers planted large fruit orchards. As a result, through the 1940’s, Meridian housed a large fruit growing, packing, and shipping industry. 
  • Local apiaries also took root since bees were vital to the fruit growing industry. These and other early agricultural industries were later joined by businesses connected with the timber and housing industries. 
  • Since 1994, Meridian has been the fastest growing city in Idaho. In fact, the population tripled between 1990-2000, and more than doubled between 2000-2007. 
  • With easy access to I-84, Highway 55, and the railroad, Meridian is an ideal location for new businesses of many types.  
  • Despite rapid growth, Meridian retains small town friendliness, offering many recreational and community amenities. As a thriving, growing community with hundreds of retail merchants, professional services, and clean industries, the city is a community which was “Built for Business, Designed for Living.”
