About

Dr. Schilling

Portrait of Dr. Schilling with Boise in the backgroundBorn in Danville, Illinois, Dr. William (Bill) Schilling  moved to Idaho when he was ten years old. After graduating from Jerome High School, he spent a year at Boise State University, before his desire for adventure led him to join the Air Force.  An initial four years of active duty were followed by another sixteen in the Idaho Air National Guard.  During twenty years of military service, Bill was able to travel to six of our seven continents! Unless there is suddenly a need for eye exams there, he will skip Antarctica.

 

While in the Guard, Bill earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Boise State University.  Approaching the end of his service, he decided it was time for new adventures, and completed graduate studies at the Pacific University College of Optometry in 2010. Initially practicing optometry in the Northern Idaho town of Hayden, he moved to South East Boise after 3 years.

 

In 2015, bent on yet another adventure, Dr. Schilling opened his own practice in the South East Boise nook known as Bown Crossing. Barber Town Eye Care is a labor of love, and Dr. Schilling looks forward to growing it, as the surrounding area flourishes!

 

Dr. Schilling is proudly a member of both the American Optometric Association and the Idaho Optometric Physicians.

The (Hi)story behind our Name

The Barber dam, mill, power plant, and company town were built by the Barber Lumber Company in the early 1900s, to process timber harvested north of Boise. At one time, the tree-lined streets of the bustling mill town housed 105 families, and included a hotel, general store and an eight grade public school. The mill was in operation until the Great Depression forced its closure and dismantling in 1934.  Many of the original homes were relocated to Boise. Today only the powerhouse and dam remain. The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
