Fire Destroys Two Central Addition Historic Houses

An unfortunate fire, perhaps arson, has halted Preservation Idaho's effort to save and rehabilitate two turn of the century homes in Boise's Central Addition. Preservation Idaho has been working behind the scenes to find a supportive buyer for the property. We have also led a number of walking tours of the neighborhood to educate the public on the importance of incorporating historic buildings into the area's future re-development. The 2nd Empire style home at 416 S. 4th St. with its elaborate exterior and interior was an exceptional lose (first picture). Preservation Idaho will attempt to salvage what remains.
