The Idaho Heritage Inn was built back in 1904 for one of Boise’s early merchants, Henry Falk. The Falk Family owned The mode department store downtown which still houses retail shops. The Inn remained in the Falk family until 1943, when it was purchased by then-Governor Chase A. Clark.
Governor Clark enjoyed a prestigious career in the public service which culminated in his appointment as a federal judge. The home was used by Clark’s daughter, Bethine and her husband, Senator Frank Church, as their Idaho residence during Senator Church’s 24 year tenure in the U.S Senate. The home remained in the Clark/Church family until 1987, when it was restored as a bed and breakfast. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the Idaho Heritage Inn continues to welcome its guests with dignity and grace.
