  • Founded in the 1860s on an important emigrant route to the territory's gold camps, Bozeman, Montana grew rapidly from frontier farming settlement into a bustling center of commerce. The arrival of the Northern Pacific Railroad in 1883 and the establishment of what would become today's Montana State University twenty years later secured the town's bright future. As Bozeman prospered, substantial buildings of brick and stone grew up along its Main Street and in its newly platted neighborhoods. Today, the town's historic center, substantial public buildings, and charming homes remain a vibrant part of the community. Discover Bozeman's rich history and architectural heritage through this lively guide.
