Cabin now likely to move to east end of Julia Davis Park

Boise Library Expansion

After testimony from city staff, historic preservation officials, staff of The Cabin literary center and dozens of engaged Boiseans, the Boise City Council decided to move the historic cabin building to a new site on the east end of Julia Davis Park. But the move will only come if a number of details can be worked out.

There are concerns over floodplain maps and potential water table issues in the area, which prompted the Boise City Council to ask city staff to find a way to bring all parties to the table to ensure the solution is the right one. If not, they indicated the decision could change.
