Ethnic Landmarks

Ethnic Landmarks book cover

Hidden among bricks and brownstones are clues to the mysterious disappearance of people from distant places. Ethnic Landmarks tours buildings and cultural sites worthy of preservation. Each building is a reminder that Boise, an immigrant city, has long been a cultural crossroad and surprisingly diverse.

“A fun and fascinating guide to historic downtown Boise. Lyrically written. Beautifully designed.
Boise architect Charles Hummel
