1950's Boise Egyptian Theatre

With a history of 150 years Boise has grown through history through different hardships and successes.  Starting with simple beginnings, Boise became a fort in the 1830s and established a defense against trouble along the Oregon Trail. Decades later, in 1863, Boise officially became a city and became the territory capital in 1866 and became the state capital when Idaho became a state in 1890. Boise continued to grow and in the 1950s, its growth soon began to skyrocket. The population has grown nearly seven times in the last seventy years, and Boise residents have enjoyed many a cultural attraction, like Julia Davis Park, the Boise Art Museum, and Boise River Greenbelt. The Boise community will continue to grow and thrive with the people who call it home.
