A Star home offers a small hometown feel where it is easy to know your neighbors. Located about 20 miles northeast of Boise, it is a terrific choice for a life with a slower pace with easy access to all that they big city has to offer. Star is a city with a rich history. Early settlers were drawn to the fertile land along the Boise River and it was also a stop on one of the branches of the Oregon Trail. It has been an important location for farming and a place that has long been welcoming to travelers.When the first schoolhouse was built in the 1870’s, a star was nailed to the front door. Over time, travelers and miners knew that when they got to the building with a star, they would be able to find lodging for the night in the town. As the years went by, the town began known as Star.
Today, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the outdoors, attend community events, and participate in recreational activities. Children and adults who live in Star real estate can find a variety of opportunities to get involved in recreational activities.
