It’s 1890, and Idaho just became the 43rd state, you walk down 6th and main and surprise!
Most of the buildings are the same as today!!
One of the best parts of Downtown Boise is all of the history. Every beautiful, old building has a great story. Here at Route Networking Group we are so lucky to have our office right in the heart of downtown, and it’s not just any old office, it’s in one of those converted historic homes along 3rd street.
Our 2-story Swiss Chalet was built in 1905 for Idaho’s 6th governor, John T. Morrison
He lived here during his term from 1902-1904 before returning to Caldwell to practice law. Morrison was also an original staff member at The College of Idaho. Since the governor’s stay it has also been a doctor’s office. On snowy days you almost feel like you are in the Swiss Alps.
Our HQ to the Swiss Chalet in 2018, which was a sweet upgrade from our tiny office above Java Coffee House on 6th and Main, but don’t get us wrong, we loved our cozy space above Java! After moving into the new office, the RNG team doubled in size. Check out our team members to see who joined the team in the new space! After we moved in we were fortunate enough to host a cornhole tournament in our yard. Just this month we also got a brand-new sign! Try and keep up!
In Addition to Our Human Staff
We also have our favorite furry employees including Bernie, Arlo, and Doey. They work tirelessly to greet all of our visitors and they all keep tabs on how many ‘pets’ they’re getting every day.
To an older space is making sure it’s the right kind of old. Not the haunted, creaky, and borderline dangerous old, but the quaint and cozy type of old. Think of sipping on a hot totti, apres-ski in a swiss-style chalet with modern comforts. One of the best things about this space is the second story back porch. Nothing beats a warm afternoon tucked in your own private oasis. The front porch is also a great spot to relax, work, and people watch! We also have a very welcoming entry with a fireplace and a conference room.
Come and see what you’re missing here at the Route Office!
