Many areas of Boise have a rich history, but one in particular has a very important story.

One which Preservation Idaho and their collaborating partners are passionate about sharing, which is why they've created a self-guided walking tour of the River Street neighborhood.

Paula Benson, with the Preservation Idaho Board of Directors, and Dan Everhart, Idaho State Historic Preservation Office Outreach Historian, joined Idaho Matters to talk more about this new resource.
