Coming Sunday: Get to know Boise's Collister neighborhood

June 7, 2013 

A century ago, people streamed out of Downtown Boise on weekends to visit Pierce Park along State Street. Today, the Collister-Pierce Park neighborhoods are still a peaceful refuge just a few minutes’ drive from the urban core.

People who live in the area love its best-of-both-worlds appeal and neighborhood businesses.

Pick up Sunday's Idaho Statesman for the latest in our history series on Boise's Building Blocks. Today, get a feel for the Collister spirit through these videos. And, read past installments of the series and about our 150 Boise icons at our page for the city's sesquicentennial.

Idaho Statesman is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
