First Settled In The 1860s, This Historic Homestead In Idaho Is Beautifully Preserved And Open For Tours

Located about five miles northwest of Boise, Idaho is a region called the Dry Creek Valley that’s rich with rolling hills, farmland, wildlife, and history. Its scenic beauty makes it a great place to explore and it even boasts an extensive network of hiking trails for doing so.
