Kuna, Idaho

Real Estate Info

Despite the blistering summer heat, the temperature in the Kuna Caves lingers at just above 50 degrees. The sun, positioned directly above the rough desert ground of Kuna, Idaho, shines a beam of light down to the cave floor. Crouched out of the line of direct sight, thieves hide the gold they stole from the afternoon stage coach. Or so the town mythology goes.

While it still feels like the kind of town where people take an evening stroll after dinner or chat with their neighbors at the local post office when they're dropping off mail, its proximity to the larger Boise Metropolitan area make this area very attractive to home owners. With friendly neighborhoods and close access to the amenities of Kuna, Boise and Meridian, living here allows people to keep things simple while still participating in the world-at-large.

Kuna in the 21st century lies about 18 miles from Idaho's capital city, Boise. Conflicting reports exist about the meaning of the town's name. While information on the Chamber of Commerce website cite "the end of the trail" as the name's meaning, other sources say that Kuna, Idaho actually means "green leaf, good to smoke" in the Shoshone language.

Regardless, in terms of people's interest in the city's trivia, both names take a backseat to the Kuna Caves. The area's geology -- more specifically, the volcanic activity in Kuna -- is said to have caused the caves to form. At one time, it was said that ancient Native Americans used the caves as an underground passageway to gain access to the Snake River, but so far, this has not been verified. But no matter. Like the meaning of the town's name, the town's citizens have morphed the caves' mythology to suit their own ends. The famous underground volcanic tube even inspired Kuna High School to call its mascots the "Kavemen," giving a nod to the "K" in Kuna.

Kuna Idaho Schools

The small town high school is only small town, because it resides in one. Its goals align with the big ambitions of the modern world. The school instructs ninth to twelfth grade students, with the institution's total population reaching about 1,400 kids. The State Superintendent of Public Instruction gave it a 4-star rating for the 2012-2013 school year.

Chief among its goals is to teach its pupils to embrace lifelong learning. To this end, each senior embarks on a senior project that requires him or her to work closely with a mentor. The students tackle subjects that are unfamiliar, and in so doing, they learn how to learn. These skill sets make them assets in the university classroom or in any number of the businesses in Kuna, Idaho and its surrounding area.

Starting about the time of year that Kuna's seniors begin to get "senioritis," the Kuna Farmer's Market encourages local artists, craftspeople and naturally, farmers to set up tents in the Kuna City Park and sell their wares. The park becomes the real estate hot spot of the spring and summer months and counts as one of the best places to spend a Saturday.

The warm air embraces markets visitors as they poke the insides of flowers with curious fingers, examine summer vegetables such as sweet corn, broccoli and eggplant and breathe in the fragrance of homemade jams and jellies. And of course, trinkets such as gourd art and vibrant canvases splashed with the colors of the rainbow beckon visitors. These items promise that the inside of their homes will feel homey and provide a comfortable atmosphere for them to enjoy their fresh market produce.
