Welcome to the official City of Weiser web presence. We have introduced a number on enhancements to better communicate with our residents, businesses, and visitors. Our website is continuously updated with information regarding services, meetings, and events. Please see our links area in the sidebar for other websites with information about our community, schools, businesses, and industry.
We are a small rural community of 5,507 located in southwest Idaho and the home of the National Oldtime Fiddle Contest and Festival. Located at the confluence of the Weiser and Snake Rivers, the City of Weiser is the county seat of Washington County. Named over 200 years ago after Peter Weiser, who was an American soldier, and member Galloway of the Corps of Discovery on the Lewis and Clark Expedition, Weiser takes pride in its rich history and is represented by many of its original buildings, which are now on the National Historic Register. Some of these historic buildings include the Galloway House, Pythian Castle and the Union Pacific Train Depot.
Today, the City of Weiser upholds its reputation as a community tied together through traditional family values and a sincere sense of community, as noted in our Welcome to Weiser Sign community’s motto, “We Love Our Kids”. Continuing with its strong natural resources, agricultural and ranching heritage, the City of Weiser’s innovative spirit can be seen in our downtown revitalization, several new parks and our beautiful Vendome Events Center. Industry and business include forest products, food processing, and technical innovations.
We would like to encourage you to explore our website, and also come and explore our wonderful community and see what we have to offer.
