Best Local Architectural Treasure 

Egyptian Theatre

Readers' Picks

No one can deny the greatness of a building with a couple of sphinxes on it. This downtown landmark is truly the treasure of Boise architecture. Its Egyptian-revival facade combined with an organist pit and a curving balcony make it a window on the past. It harkens back to days when buildings weren't just prefabricated brown square blocks. This beauty is from a time when buildings were made to be impressive: lasting legacies that their owners carved their names into.

Second Place: Boise Depot
