Nathan Falk came to the United States in 1862 at the age of 15, following his brother to Boise two years later.

In addition to his lifelong dedication to the store, Nathan was a public-spirited man who served on the school board and was an active member of the Boise Chamber of Commerce. He served a term as president of the latter organization.

Like his brother, Nathan returned to Germany to marry, taking Rosa Steinmeier as his bride in 1878. Six children were born to this union.
