Remnants of Boise Virtual Tour Now Available Online

Posted By on Tue, Apr 16, 2013 at 5:30 PM

The Remnants of Boise Virtual Tour allows users to navigate through Boise past and present.

Lions head cornices and wooden beams carved into gargoyles were just a few of the fragments collected from long-gone Boise buildings in a new exhibit called Remnants of Boise.

Visitors jockeyed into the city's Sesqui-Shop during the show's opening on First Thursday, April 4, to view a large collection of photos chronicling Boise's built environment.

One of the biggest draws, a virtual tour of the city displayed on a large monitor at the Sesqui-Shop, is now available online. The Remnants of Boise Virtual Tour allows users to navigate high-quality photos of both past and present, relying on an interface provided by Meridian company Regal 360.

Each of the 25 locations explores the history of the city—grouped under headings of community, enterprise and environment—from Hyde Park to Boise's warehouse district to the diversion dam.

Visit the Boise City Department of Arts and History website, or click here, to catch the virtual tour in action.
