Boise Basque Tour

During the late nineteenth century, a number of individuals from "Basque Country" in Europe immigrated to Southwest Idaho. As a result, the state of Idaho (particularly, the city of Boise) is home to the second-largest community of Basque individuals in the United States and contains a number of sites related to Basque history and culture. On the Boise Basque Tour website, visitors from around the world are invited to take a virtual tour of fourteen of these sites. These sites include the Cyrus Jacobs/Uberuaga House, which hosted numerous Basque families during the early twentieth century; the Chico club, a building that was constructed in 1935 by Augustin and Petra Belaustegui and was originally the Belaustegui Hotel & Basque Boarding House; and the Basque Museum and Cultural Center, which was established in 1985. Note that the description of the museum includes a link to museum's website, where visitors are invited to take a virtual tour of the Cyrus Jacobs/Uberuaga House. This historic house was the original site of the museum.
