Notes
Survey number HABS ID-23
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-18).
Building/structure dates: 1891 initial construction
Significance: This local landmark, modeled after H.H. Richardson's 1887 Marshall Field Store in Chicago was designed in the Romanesque Revival style by architect James King. It is one of the best examples of this style in the west. It utilizes Boise sandstone from the Tablerock quarry for its 20-inch-thick walls "to give an idea of solidity, strength and permanence." Other Boise buildings designed by King are listed on the National Register of Historic Places but the Boise City National Bank is the only surviving example of his commercial work.
