Best Local Architectural Treasure

Tie, Boise Depot and Idaho State Capitol

Readers' Picks

OK, so what do these things have in common? They were built a long time ago (1925 and 1905 respectively), and they anchor either end of Capitol Boulevard. The two icons of the City of Trees share top honors this year. It's not hard to understand why. Along with the second- and third-place winners in this category, there are few structures that are as easily identifiable in the city. Recent renovation work done on both buildings has ensured that they will continue to hosts field trips, weddings, tourists and politicians for at least another century or two.

Second Place: Egyptian Theatre

Third Place: Idanha Hotel
