Additional Details:
The old U. S. Assay Office, built in 1870-72, was Boise's pride and a symbol of the importance of the Idaho gold mines both to Idaho and to the nation. In 1933 the building became headquarters of the Boise National Forest. With its noble trees and original fence, the stone structure still looks much as it did when Boise was only a decade old.
