Michoacana Restaurant Mural
 Mural At Favorite Mexican Restaurant
The Isla de Janitzio is the main island of Lake Patzcuaro in the state of Michoacan, Mexico.
The area is famous for its butterfly fishermen named for the butterfly shaped nets used to catch the "pescado blanco" - white fish. The statue atop the hill is named for Jose Maria Morelos, a great hero of Mexico's independence.

Boone Memorial Presbyterian Church
Boone Memorial Presbyterian Church
Intersperced among the vintage homes in our neighborhood is this beautiful church.
Reverend William Boone founded the church in 1888 and later, in 1891, he founded the College of Idaho, just down the street!   Interestingly, the moulded exterior brickwork consists of bricks from a demolished local schoolhouse and a demolished court house.
