Boise, Idaho is both the state capital and most populous city in the state. The city was founded along the Boise River as Fort Boise on the Oregon Trail during the Gold Rush. When Montana became its own territory in the 1860s, reducing the Idaho territory, Boise was incorporated and made the capital of Idaho.
Boise’s location connected the Oregon Trail to Idaho City and mining areas which were booming during the Gold Rush and Boise grew rapidly. As the Gold Rush ended, Boise’s lack of railroad and dry climate contributed to a decline. During this time, Boise residents made irrigation and farming a priority creating irrigation systems, dams and reservoirs. In 1925 when the railroad finally came to Boise and the city began to grow again. Boise built a municipal airport early on, fearing that without one they may miss on growth as they did without railway service during the beginning of the 20th century. During World War II Gowen Field was established in Boise as a military flying and training base and the many airmen arriving lead to further growth in jobs, urban renewal projects and construction.
This history of manufacturing, aeronautics and construction includes many occupations where asbestos products were commonly used, putting workers at an increased risk of developing mesothelioma cancer.
