Not everyone realizes that Boise has its own Tin Pan Alley, a tiny back lane that became a street. It got its official Ada County Highway District sign in 1992.
The short dirt road is tucked in the middle of an odd-shaped block between 19th and 21st streets, just south of the Westside Drive In on State Street.
As the story goes, musicians who lived in houses along the alley came up with the name and it stuck.
Anyone know the real story, or who these musicians might have been? Let us know: email@example.com.
Never miss a local story.
