A little local history

This building was dedicated in 1883 as “The City Hall” fire station, as Boise City Hall was located on the second floor. Then, in 1889 the building was renamed “Central Fire Station.”

Here’s an old-time photo of the fire station from City of Boise website.

And today, it’s a designated historic building that houses shops and restaurants.

What an awesome building! I'll happily rent out the ground floor if I can live on the top floor, and have that lookout tower. Nice that it's been designated historic.

Boise has some cool historic buildings downtown. It'd be cool to go up to the tower and look out over the downtown.
