Notes
Survey number HABS ID-114
Building/structure dates: 1909 initial construction
Significance: The Pierce and Company Allen-Wright building was listed as eligible for the National Register as part of the Tourtellotte and Hummel Architecture in Idaho Thematic Group; it was listed as Site #56. The building is architecturally significant as a handsome example of, and the only one in the thematic group, of the effect of height and modernity for which Boise business blocks were reaching between 1905 and 1910. The strikingly tall Pierce and Company Allen-Wright building stood out in stark contrast to the surrounding one story commercial buildings and to the typical two story taller commercial buildings of its time. Additionally, its classical facade with vertical bands of inset windows represented a striking departure from the typical picturesque facades of contemporary and earlier commercial structures.
