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.
Harrison Boulevard is one of the main thoroughfares of the North End; the historic mansions of this tree-lined street set the tone for this old neighborhood. In recent years the area has attracted a large following of young couples with its charm, creating a renewed interest in one of Boise's original neighborhoods.
In the middle of the North End, is Hyde Park with its boutiques and popular eateries like Lucky 13. For more than 20 years the Hyde Park Street Fair, has set the tone for this fun neighborhood gathering spot. Spilling into Camel's Back Park, one of Boise's more popular open spaces, the fair attracts visitors from all over the Treasure Valley. In addition the North End has more churches per capita than any other neighborhood in the state, many of which are of historic significance.
