Travel America: Boise Idaho: Idaho Heritage Inn

There are three Boises in the USA (in addition to Boise Idaho) - Boise, Texas, Boise, a neighborhood in Portland, Oregon and Boise City, in Oklahoma.

From the website of the Idaho Heritage Inn:
The Idaho Heritage Inn was built in 1904 for one of Boise’s early merchants, Henry Falk. The Falk family owned The Mode department store downtown which still houses retail shops. The Inn remained in the Falk family until 1943, when it was purchased by then-Governor Chase A. Clark.

Governor Clark enjoyed a prestigious career in public service which culminated in his appointment as a federal judge. The home was used by the Clark’s daughter, Bethine, and her husband, Senator Frank Church, as their Idaho residence during Senator Church’s 24 year tenure in the U.S. Senate. The home remained in the Clark/Church family until 1987, when it was restored as a Bed & Breakfast. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the Idaho Heritage Inn continues to welcome its guests with dignity and grace.

This six-room bed and breakfast, lovated in the former Governor's mansion, offers private baths, local TV, modem hookups, full breakfast service, a fax/copier, and quaint air-conditioned rooms perfect for a quieter setting than in the downtown area.
