Welcome to the Newto News for March of 2024. My name is Zack Cockfield, and my team and I created Newtomedia as a way for visitors or new residents to get information about a city. Each month we bring together resources that will update you on the history, amenities, culture, future opportunities and all other things inside a city that make it unique. We also hope to be a resource for connecting you with people and businesses that can help you live a better life. If you find our efforts useful, please click on the links to get more information!

Boise, Idaho, was founded in the mid-1800s during the height of the Gold Rush. Originally a small trading post, Boise quickly grew into a bustling city as more and more settlers made their way west in search of fortune. By the late 1800s, Boise had become the capital of the Idaho Territory and was a hub of commerce and culture. The city experienced rapid growth in the early 20th century, driven by the construction of new railroads and the expansion of industries such as agriculture and mining. Boise became known for its vibrant downtown area, with bustling streets filled with shops, restaurants, and theaters. In the latter half of the 20th century, Boise saw a shift towards a more diverse economy, with the rise of technology and healthcare industries. The city has continued to grow and thrive, becoming a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts, with its proximity to the Boise River and the nearby mountains. Today, Boise is a dynamic and thriving city, known for its vibrant culture, booming economy, and stunning natural beauty.
