I strongly believe there is a correlation between how long someone has lived in the Treasure Valley and how much disgust there is with "transplants."

And I get it.

It's similar to the passion and the love you share with a band that you discovered that no one else has even heard of. One day, you hear this band on the radio and suddenly, all the people you secretly hate are rocking this band's t-shirt as if they heard of them before you did... before they were "famous."

So, why is Boise's growth "impressive"?

The answer is simple - we're witnessing the early stages of one of the fastest-growing cities in the US and we'll all have the privilege of saying: "We were here first."

The fact of the matter is, there will always be people moving in and out of Idaho for their own reasons. Whether it's hearing about the hate some locals have for people coming in from California or the reasons why Idaho "sucks" from people who moved out, there will always be too sides to the ever-changing coin that is Idaho.

But, just how fast has Boise been growing and is it enough to warrant a "panic" or fear that Idaho will soon be "taken over"?

Let's take a look at the impressive growth that's taken place in Boise starting all the way back in the 1900s.
