Tour

Location

Randolph Robertson Neighborhood/Boise, ID

Sunday, October 1, 2017 over 500 people toured 6 private homes in the Randolph Robertson neighborhood and learned about the history of the homes and the development of the neighborhood.  

When the automobile became king in America, it influenced how neighborhoods were designed.  The homes on tour reflected the popularity of Ranch styles, horizontal lines, and big windows that worked to bring the outdoors in.  These homes were built in the 1950's and 1960's and each with a unique look that showcased the most popular architectural styles of the day.

Attendees also learned about why cities do surveys and the important role they play in city planning.  Beyond just focusing on preservation, they help cities develop thoughtful planning and development projects that can make the most of private and public buildings and sites.

 


This event was possible thanks to contributions from our sponsors and a grant from Boise City Department of Arts & History:
