Best Local Architectural Treasure

Idaho State Capitol

Readers' Picks

Cruising down Capitol Boulevard, it's hard not to notice one of Boise's most stately buildings--the Idaho State Capitol. Since 1912, "the People's House," clad in ornate columns, scagliola and exotic marble, has inspired Idahoans to political office and served as the venue for big changes in both the state and the city in which it resides. Don't be surprised if the so-called "Capitol of Light" continues to a hold a special place in locals' hearts. 700 W. Jefferson St., Boise, 208-332-1302, legislature.idaho.gov.
