Growing from the needs of the surrounding North End Neighborhood, Hyde Park became Boise's first suburban shopping area, focused around the nexus of 4 early subdivisions.
Located more than a mile from the downtown, the area was a thriving commercial district from the turn of the century, providing two barbers, a pharmacy, meat market, bicycle shop, hotel, shoe shop, milliner, dyer, dairy, post office, bakery, plumber and lumber yard. Streetcar service supported the district, connecting it to the surrounding neighborhood and downtown.
