Star is a city steeped in personality, fostered from over a century of growth. It was one of the first communities in the Treasure Valley, founded as a farming town along the Boise River. The settlement developed into a landing stop for workers as they traveled across the western trails to and from Boise. A main irrigation ditch was built in between Star and Middleton, which proved essential to the farming community and the economies of both cities.
Star earned its name from a local landmark -- a school house, constructed sometime in the 1870s. When a star was nailed to the front of the building, it became a local landmark that guided miners and other travelers on their way through the dense wilderness of the area. The star symbol became more popular, and the settlement adopted it’s name.
Star slowly became an official town, thanks to its strategic location in the territory. In time it developed general stores, grocers, and hotels for the traveling masses. Star expanded its city limits in 1905, helping develop an interurban electric railway system, built in 1907. Star became extremely popular with Idaho residents and visitors alike. Rapid growth to the city began, and Star continues to be a trading center in Idaho’s agricultural community.
Star has impressive public parks and recreational facilities, open year round for the benefit of the city. One park in Star is Blake Park, spanning four acres across and including playground equipment, swings, and horseshoe pits. This park is incredibly user-friendly, and has spaces with gazebos, picnic tables, and barbecues, excellent for bringing the community together.
