    ---------------------------------- BOISE, OREGON ---------------------------------

    It was then a part of the Oregon country, held jointly by the United States and Great Britain. Boundary disputes with Great Britain were settled by the Oregon Treaty in 1846, and the first permanent U.S. settlement in Idaho was established by the Mormons at Franklin in 1860.

    The city of Boise was originally founded during the civil war. On July 4th 1863, while the Battle of Gettysburg raged, the original town was plotted out near the Fort Boise location. In 1864 the discovery of gold and the influx of emigrants along the Oregon Trail made Boise a supply stop central to the region.

    -----------------------------National Bank building---------------------------------
    The First National Bank Building of Idaho was constructed in 1902 as the new home for Idaho’s first bank. In a move to restore confidence during Boise’s bank crisis in August 1932, the First National Bank hung a sign that said, “If you want your money, come and get it.” The building was demolished in 1972 as part of a planned urban renewal project to build an enclosed shopping mall.

      Why couldn't you just put your paper money in the coin slot? Why is there that square tehing for the coins to go in?

      Keep e'm coming ! They are really unique !
    5. Alan2310 Alan2310, 8 years ago
      Celiene, on the opposite side of the bank there was a hole for paper money, you roll the bill the size of a peas and push in the hole.
      If someone use the coins side the put the bill, the mechanized will jam, and you will not able the put any coins in.
      I will add a picture later tonight of a close up from the inside.

      Many thanks for your interest in my post, also for your comments, much appreciated.

      Regards

      Hi Alan! I think you rolled those bills into really thin tubes like cigarettes. Rolls. Balls would be hard to do!

      Idaho WAS a territory then 1863 it became a state in 1890. in 1859 it was Washington territory. in 1853 it was part Washington territory and part Oregon territory. And yes it was Oregon territory in 1848. P.S. there was a bank in Boise in 1867(first national).
