Located on the southwest corner of North Cole and Ustick Road, the Library! at Cole & Ustick acts as a community center, welcoming and integrating the neighborhood and surrounding businesses. The full-service library provides a welcoming, light-filled environment, with computer and Internet access, lots of books, movies and music, spaces for study, meetings and relaxing, and special programs for all ages.
The historic Almon W. and Mary E. Spaulding Farmstead, also known as “Spaulding Ranch” is located at 3805 N. Cole Road. It consists of approximately 20 acres containing 9 structures, agricultural fields, and landscape features.
The farmstead is significant for its association with the early settlement and development of Boise. As the last full visual testament to the early history of Boise’s West Bench, it provides a reminder of the area’s agricultural legacy. What was once all rural, farmland has long been consumed by Boise’s creeping urban development, but the Spaulding Ranch continues to stand as a record of our past.
The ranch has added significance as the home of Boise’s first female doctor/surgeon, Dr. Mary E. Spaulding, who homesteaded the property with her husband starting in 1896.
