The Stone House in the Cañon
In 1884 Mary Hallock Foote, renowned writer and illustrator, left her home and family in the East and followed her husband, Arthur De Wint Foote, a respected mining and civil engineer, to Boise, Idaho. Arthur had a vision of creating a canal system which would one day serve to irrigate the entire Boise Valley. This is the true story of the beautiful home in the rugged Boise River Cañon that the couple built and lived in from 1885-1889.
"And there are thousands like us! If there never had been there would be no great West."- Mary Hallock Foote
