Preserving Boise's Heritage

With their historic houses and tree-lined streets, Boise’s older neighborhoods represent a critical part of the city’s character and sense of place. Boise has ten designated historic districts that serve as visible reminders of the historical, archaeological, architectural, educational and cultural heritage of Boise City.

To preserve that heritage, the City of Boise has designated Historic Preservation planning staff and a Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) that was established in 1979. To contact HP staff click here.
