When: First Thursday of every month, 5:30 p.m. Continues through Oct. 4 2012
Did you know that Julia Davis Park receives 1 million visitors each year? Or that Tom Davis reportedly made a profit of more than $10,000 on his 1872 apple crop on the future park site? And just who were Tom and Julia Davis—and what part did they play in creating Boise? If you love local history, take a free docent tour of Julia Davis Park on First Thursdays. Meet at the Sacajawea monument in the Idaho State Historical Museum Plaza at 5:30 p.m. and take a self-guided tour using the free app for iPhone and iPod, bicycle tour, or walking tour with a docent. For additional information about the program or if you would like to be trained as a docent, contact Kathleen Barrett at 208-338-9108 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
