Advantages of Living on the Boise Bench

Once a desert area with no water supply, is now a rich land full of homes, businesses and agricultural landscapes, even producing a variety of crops namely, prunes, apples, peaches and cherries and a variety of vegetables. Ridenbaugh Canal has been used to supply water to the land which helped it thrive and enabled more people to finally live comfortably in the area.

This district was also one of Boise’s early suburbs. It may not be as prestigious as the North End or the East End but it sure brings a different charm.

The Bench features a mix of unique homes in different architectural designs showing off their age’s beauty from Cape Cod, Colonial Revival, Spanish Revival, Ranch, Tudor and Brick homes. These beautiful homes, especially those built around the 1930s to 1950s, bring a different character and charm to the district, and have dubbed the Bench as “the other North End.”
