Boise is 150-years-old this year. The same year that Idaho became a territory, 1863, Boise became a town.
Terri Schorzman knows the city well. She was born here and didn’t leave until she was in high school when her father took a job in Colorado. Schorzman says she had a circuitous route back to Boise, including 13 years in Washington D.C.
“It just seemed like the right thing to do,” she says. “I just wanted to raise my kids here.” Schorzman and her family left Washington D.C. on a whim. She and her husband didn’t have any jobs lined up in Boise.
