The Galo Arambarri Boarding House near Shoshone, Idaho is a stone building that was built during 1913-1914 by Basque stonemason Ignacio Berriochoa. The building served as a boarding house for Basque men who worked as sheepherders in the area. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
It is a one-and-a-half-story 31 feet (9.4 m) by 60 feet (18 m) structure with a narrow bargeboard on the front gable end of its roof. The stone walls on its sides rise 3 feet (0.91 m) higher than the stone walls at the front and rear. The long roof is interrupted by three shallow dormers facing to the side, each with a shallow gable roof and a narrow bargeboard.
