Notes
Survey number HABS ID-18
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-14).
Building/structure dates: 1896 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1905 subsequent work
Building/structure dates: 1927 subsequent work
Significance: At one time the Falk-Bloch Mercantile Company's building was called the big brick "emporium." Occupying a corner of the historic principal intersection of downtown Boise, its original facade has unfortunately since been covered over; completely hiding its original architectural merit.
