Transportation[edit]

Idanha served as the eastern terminus of a transcontinental railroad, proposed by Colonel T. Egenton Hogg, that terminated in Idanha because of a lack of funding. Idanha saw rail service until the 1950s, when the track was removed for development of Detroit Lake, situated over the historical road bed of the former Oregon Pacific Railroad.[10]
