Boise Basin Interpretive Association

Thirty-eight miles northeast of Boise, historic Idaho City, once the largest city in the Northwest, remains a living representation of the Boise Basin Gold Rush. The town, which survived disastrous fires in the 1860s, has outlived the gold. A large collection of historic red brick buildings still survives. In addition to the downtown buildings, Idaho City has a Pioneer Cemetery, some of the oldest churches in the territory and the states first newspaper, Idaho world. Today Idaho City is one of the state's best examples of historic preservation with the Boise Basin Museum, ongoing restorations, and many of the classic buildings still in use. Hiking, camping, snowshoeing and Nordic skiing are all nearby, and yurt camping in the winter months is very popular. Cougar, bear, coyotes and wildlife abound in the forests that punctuate the community. Set alongside the Ponderosa Pine Scenic Highway, Idaho City bridges the past and present.
