This unique building was built for Juan Cruz Anduiza in 1912 as a boarding house for Basque sheepherders who wintered in Boise. The rooms were across the front and down the side of the building and the kitchen, dining room, etc. wee in the basement. The rest of the building, an area approximately 35 ft. x 105 ft., was a handball court that was also used for public dances.

In 1948 Raymond J. Briggs bought the then vacant building and converted the first floor rooms into office space. The outside entrances to the rooms were replaced with glass block windows, a new entrance was made and the inside porch the overlooked the court was enclosed for a hall.
Part of the building remains much as it was when first built. The handball court, which was the largest covered court of its kind in the Northwest, is still used for handball by Basque people today.
