Soon after the discovery of Gold in Northern Idaho (1862) the City of Boise was founded (1863). Its first people were the U.S. Cavalry, Merchants, Mining and Stockmen. Although a few Mormons from Utah had previously lived in this valley, it was not until Feb. 1903 that a branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was organized here in 1904. The “little white church” was purchased, which served the people until 1938. This monument is dedicated to those who triumphed over adversity in the establishment of a church.
Located outside the Boise LDS Temple.
