Kuna, Idaho


Around 1882 a station was placed at Fifteen Mile House station by the Oregon Short Line Railway Company and was called “Kuna.” A small settlement grew around the station but did not last long. The branch line from Nampa to Boise was completed in 1887 and the need for the Kuna depot was over.

It took the promise of irrigation water to bring renewed life to Kuna. In 1905, settlers bought tracts of land, and by 1908 there were enough school-aged children for Kuna to open its own school. Kuna continued to grow slowly, but steadily, with strong roots in agriculture. Kuna has seen its most rapid growth in the past 20 years, due to improved roads and rising home costs in other areas of Ada County.

Kuna still retains its small-town charm, and holds Kuna Days every year as a way to bring the whole community together. The Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area is also nearby, which holds North America’s densest population of nesting raptors and offers lecture and tours about raptors.

One of the benefits of living in Kuna is a special zero down loan program reserved for rural areas. Many areas in and around Kuna qualify for this USDA Rural Development Loan that has competitive interest rates, no down payment and very low mortgage insurance.
