Inscription. In September of 1863 the pioneer printers Joseph & Thomas Butler founded the newspaper called the “Boise News.” It was later changed to the “Idaho World.”

The Idaho World boasts the title of Idaho’s oldest newspaper.

The Idaho World building has been home to the Boise Market Lot, the Judge’s Warehouse, and a Chinese store called “Man Wo Corner.”

It was purchased on October 20th, 1883 by Heman and Chas E. Jones for $350.00 to house the Idaho World Newspaper.
