The Porthill-Rykerts Border Crossing connects the town of Bonners Ferry, Idaho with Creston, British Columbia on the Canada–US border. This crossing was first established in 1883, when Canada directed J.C. Rykerts to establish Customs and Immigration inspection operations at the border, primarily to inspect vessels crossing the border on the adjacent Kootenai River. In 1973, Canada replaced its white wooden border station with the present facility. In 1967, the US replaced its depression-era brick border station with the current wooden structure. A redesign of the road system approaching the border enabled the new facility to be built in a different location, so the old border station remains nearby. In 2014, the old border station was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
