  • Frank Eld House

    Idaho native Frank Eld spent most of his career restoring Roseberry, a historic Idaho townsite in Valley County. Luckily for Boise lovers of history and old houses, Eld and his wife Kathy Eld stepped in to save an 1893 Boise house slated for demolition in the Central Addition neighborhood north of Julia Davis Park. The Elds moved the house to a new site in East Boise and have spent the last couple of years restoring it to its original state.
