Star is perfect for those who desire a more quiet and peaceful lifestyle with a small population of just over 9,000 people. As one of Idaho’s earliest settlements, Star holds a rich and proud history with the Oregon Trail and the Boise River passing through town. The appeal of Star speaks for itself with its small-town charm, friendly community, and agricultural focus. New residents are taking advantage of the ample land opportunities as a blank slate to lay down roots in a growing area.
