Quiet Suburb


Situated on the north side of the Boise River, about 30 minutes west of the capital, Star is a small—and primarily residential—city. It was first incorporated in the year 1905 after a period of rapid economic growth, followed by a steep decline, and then incorporated again in 1997 once recovered. Its name comes from its (now demolished) schoolhouse, which featured a wooden star on the front door. Now Star, Idaho is considered an affluent suburb of Boise, with many residents making the easy commute daily.
