Who Lies Below: The Treasure Valley

Who Lies Below: The Treasure Valley

Talks/Lectures
The cemeteries of Boise and the Treasure Valley have thousands of residents. Many are historically famous and many just have interesting stories. You’ll learn that you don’t have to be famous to be fascinating. This presentation will discuss through photos of their graves those who had an impact on our city and state. Just of a few of the people we will discuss are: the former governor of Idaho and the man who blew him up, the Last Madman of Rock and Roll, the last professional lady bronc rider, the last man legally hanged in Idaho, the eight-year-old Boise police officer, the first Jewish governor in the United States, the man who had the first house in the country heated with geothermal hot steam and the United States' James Bond. Without concern for the weather or having to walk miles on uneven ground, we will visit the grave sites of these people and hear stories that may surprise you, make you happy, sad, or even chuckle a little.
