Warm Springs homes are known and famous to be owned by prominent people in history. In its
early days, the place has been synonymously known for its high estate and power because of
the people living there. Prominent politicians and influential people like C.C. Anderson,
Department store magnate; the millionaire frontier brewer and 19-Century Mayor John Lemp,
who was also known as Boise’s Beer Baron; and pioneer banker C.W. Moorew whose
residence is still an attraction as it stands elegantly at the Walnut Street intersection. And yet
another discovery during a recent transaction has pertained to a home being originally owned
by the legendary state and national figure, U.S. Senator William Borah.
As the residents boast their history, the old horse hitching post is also still seen in Warm
Springs. Their history started when the prominent and prestigious owners of the Hot Springs
built their houses on the street and pumped in natural hot water from east of Table Rock to use
at home. Another significant historical marker they have is the Trolley House Restaurant which
was originally on the end of the line for the Boise Transit System’s street car.
In conclusion, Warm Springs not only offers lovely, historic homes, but also a rich history that
everyone that each homeowner in the area wants to preserve.
Warm Springs is also well-rounded with their amenities. Downtown is just a few minutes drive or
a few pedals away. You will have a lot to go to explore while in the area from
boutiques, local art galleries and restaurants to parks, trails and rivers. The outdoor
amphitheater is also nearby where thousands of Boise residents go to enjoy the annual Idaho
Shakespeare Festival. Other nearby attractions include the Old Idaho Penitentiary State Historic
Site, which was built in the 1800’s housing some of the West’s notorious criminals, and the
Idaho Botanical Garden, once standing as a prison’s nursery and farm, but now hosts a variety
of family-centric events.
Finally, who can ever forget the 20-mile long Boise Greenbelt, Ann Morrison Park or Table
Rock? It is a common hobby for locals to meet, hike, bike, run and enjoy the scenery of the sun
setting in all of these popular Boise locations.
School children will not only enjoy the whole lot of their surroundings and their rich culture, they
will also be able to continue their education in Adams Elementary, East Junior High and Boise
