The Bishops' House

A UNIQUE PART OF BOISE'S HERITAGE

The Bishops' House has become a desired destination is Boise as a venue host for big events. A grand, sweeping veranda wraps around three sides of the house, with entry to the Foyer, Front Parlor, Dining Room, Music Room and Service Kitchen. Up the open stairway, the second floor features the Bride's and Groom's Rooms.

The Bride's Room, within the curve of the turret, features floral wallpaper, lace curtains, and a chandelier; and it opens onto a small balcony.

The Groom's Room sports elegant, richly colored striped wallpaper and carpeting. Period chairs provide seating, while paintings and drawings accent the walls.

The Garden at The Bishops' House includes a Gazebo, Arch from the Rose Garden, and Shade Garden along the picturesque rock wall. Additionally, the front wall exhibits traditional flower paintings, trees and shrubs, perfect for photography and providing space for relaxing and enjoying the ambience of this unique setting.

We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.
abraham lincoln
A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved -- I do not expect the house to fall -- but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.
abraham lincoln
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
abraham lincoln
With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
abraham lincoln
Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith, let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.
abraham lincoln
I do the very best I can, I mean to keep going. If the end brings me out all right, then what is said against me won't matter. If I'm wrong, ten angels swearing I was right won't make a difference.
abraham lincoln
Our safety, our liberty, depends upon preserving the Constitution of the United States as our fathers made it inviolate. The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.
