Through its project to restore the Surgeon's Quarters at the Boise VA Medical Center, Prservation Idaho was able to both reclaim history and help veterans.

Step back in time Saturday, Aug. 5 and view the Surgeon's Quarters, returned to its former state more than 150 years after it was built in downtown Boise in 1864. One of the oldest buildings in Idaho, it has long been a feature of the medical community and has a track record of housing doctors working for the military, U.S. Public Health Service and Veterans Administration. Thanks to Preservation Idaho, a host of donors and a team of archeologists, the long-vacant building will soon be used to support veterans once again.

Visit during the open house for self-guided tours, an hourly house history and a restoration presentation.
