Heritage Homes Tour


Boise is full of historic buildings, and our neighborhoods are also sprinkled with historic and cultural gems. The Heritage Homes Tour, a Preservation Idaho program, works to showcase these homes in an effort to promote public awareness of Boise's rich assemblage of buildings, neighborhoods and landscapes. According to Preservation Idaho, "Historic places represent a snapshot in time, a reminder of the path we have taken and the base upon which our future is built. It is a terrible loss to our cultural heritage when they are taken away. The homes that are showcased in the Heritage Homes Tour are, in a sense, public places that each of us can enjoy and appreciate." The seventh annual Heritage Homes will showcase homes on Warm Springs Avenue, Harrison Boulevard and in the Hays Street District.

Saturday, Oct. 10, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., $20 members, $25 for nonmembers, Assay Office, 210 Main St. For more information about the Heritage Homes Tour, contact
