The Basque Museum
The Basque Museum
Cyrus Jacobs was a pioneer merchant and leading citizen of Boise when the town was founded in 1863. The house is the oldest surviving brick building in Boise. In 1895 the marriage of William E. Borah and Mamie McConnell took place in the front parlor. The Uberuagas, a Basque family, acquired the house in the early 1900s, and it was made into a boarding house. It served as a social center for young Basque sheepherders. The house and adjacent Museum complex function as the only Basque Museum in the United States.
