In just a couple of days one of the Boise area's favorite events is back after taking a two year hiatus. This massively fun community event and street fair has been enjoyed for decades and locals and newbies are thrilled to see it coming back and back in a big way.
A family who left San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake built the home in 1911 and they built it to last. Today the home is on the National Register of Historic Places. The home was constructed with 12 solid inches of concrete from top to bottom.
I'm 16 days away from my first attempt at the Race to Robie Creek, so I'm spending a lot of time in Boise's North End trying to get some hill training in on 8th Street. The last thing I want to do coming back down from the hill is stop moving, but this house was so interesting that I actually turned around and ran back to take a second look at it!
