History & History Related Items

Nyssa history:

Nyssa was founded in 1883. When the Oregon Short Line Railroad came through southern Idaho and Eastern Oregon, the town sprang up. It was a watering station between Ontario, Oregon and Parma, Idaho for many years. Eventually it grew into a trading station also.

There are several versions of how the town was named. One is that it is an Indian word which means sagebrush. The second is that it was the name of a Greek town where one of the railroad workers was from.
