In July of 1871 construction began on this handsome brick building, which was completed by October of the same year.

The building was built by C.S. and E.A. Kingsley as a general store.

Several businesses have occupied this building over the years, including Kennally's Tin Shop, a hardware store, trinket shop and the Orchard Hotel.

In 1909 the Boise County Commissioners bought the building for $1,000 from Mary Orchard to use as the County Court House.
The building interior has been remodeled to replicate earlier days using the original furnishings from the 1863 Court House on Commercial Street.

It is still in use today as the Boise County Court House.

The building is on the National Register of Historic Buildings in America.
