Our Story

Gold Bricks Icon Kelly Wood's ancestors arrived in Idaho Boise, ID | Wood Tarver Financial

The ancestors of the firm’s founder, Kelly Wood, arrived in Idaho when gold was discovered in the Boise Basin. They were among thousands who came to seek their fortune.

Kelly’s great-great uncle, Cyrus Jacobs, helped build the Basque Hotel in Boise. Cyrus Jacobs was known as a leader in community enterprises. Many years later, Kelly and his wife, Cathy Jo, held their wedding reception at the Basque Hotel.

Kelly’s great-grandfather helped finance the Boise Children’s Home. The building is now on the National Register of Historic Places. Kelly feels the influence of these ancestors strongly, which fuels his desire to continue this legacy of giving back and assisting others.
