Hidden History: South Boise – Discovering a Neighborhood’s Past

The built environment has changed as much over time as the natural environment. Roads now cover what was once running water, wagon roads, and railroad tracks. Shopping complexes and subdivisions have been built on land once used for farms and dairies. Sometimes the history of a place is hidden under the facade of modern life. Barbara Perry Bauer uncovers the history of once Boise neighborhood using historic images, oral history, maps, and ephemera to show the past and present of South Boise.
