I am a sucker for names, so when I heard Boise, Idaho had a “Linen District” I had to get there. It is an emerging district so it isn’t wall-to-wall boutiques, cafes and restaurants; but that’s the fun - there is a sense of discovery, of being a pioneer. I love to find places in their “incubation stage.”
Yes there is a Linen Building, built in 1910, it was originally the American Laundry Building, but today the “white washed” building (just like clean hospital sheets) has been transformed into a special events centre and art gallery – it is a fun place to explore.
