The area known as Boise’s North End was the City’s first “suburban” development. First platted in 1878, the neighborhood was a small area covering only a few blocks between 9th and 13th Streets, from Fort Street north to Resseguie. Beginning in 1891 however, speculators began purchasing land in earnest, beginning a 25 year intensive building boom.
Today and the Future
The North End was generally developed as a working and middle class neighborhood, hence the preponderance of modest bungalows; but the area is also unique for the mixture of housing stock that can be found there.
