Six miles east of downtown Boise, on the banks of the Boise River, a company town named Barber once thrived. An integral part of the Boise landscape for thirty years, the lumber mill and townsite closed in 1935 from declining profits and dwindling supplies of raw lumber. The mill, town, and associated buildings vanished from the landscape, the story of its existence buried in the larger historical narrative of Boise. Former residents and employees struggled to keep the story alive over ten decades as urban growth reshaped the terrain.

Join us as historian Barbara Perry Bauer reveals the few remaining physical traces of Barber, Idaho, a company town lost to time. Bike tours will begin and end at Lucky 13 at 3662 S. Eckert Road. Tour is approximately 2 miles on bike and 1/2 mile walking. Easy difficulty, with one slight hill.

Please prepare for the weather: bring water, wear comfortable clothes, and apply liberal amounts of sunscreen. In case of inclement weather, please plan on bringing warm and waterproof clothes. Also, be sure to wear a helmet!

RSVP required.

All attendees are required to sign a Waiver of Liability. To see this form, please contact Arts & History staff at 208-608-7050 or artsandhistory@cityofboise.org
