Bozeman, Montana, situated near
the center of the well-watered and
fertile Gallatin Valley, is one of the
earliest established, trading
communities in the State. At an
elevation of 4795 feet, the city has
historically served as the commercial
hub of a large agricultural area, and
enjoys that role today.
The current population of Bozeman is 21, 645. Bozeman’s historic
resources reflect the evolution of this western Montana community
from a frontier outpost located on the west side of Bozeman Pass to
a prosperous stable commercial and educational center.

The Extreme History Project is a non profit, public history
organization which looks for ways of making history relevant for
community, policy and Society.
We create and support events, programs, publications, research and
any public offerings which promote social change through the
understanding of shared history.
Social ills such as cultural and historical trauma, prejudices, historical
denial and other such problems undermine the fabric of society by
creating divisions, anger and hate. Often these problems stem from
a lack of understanding and transparency of the underlining history
which caused the formation of these conditions. The Extreme
History Project looks for opportunities to research and present such
history as a means to start a dialogue which can lead to healing
individuals, communities and society as a whole. An understanding
of our shared history and the complexities which formed our
modern society has the potential to ignite a sympathy / empathy
response where only misunderstanding and antipathy previously
existed. This response can lead to building bridges between
alienated communities, as well as sharing in the reconstruction of a
new social paradigm.

“From Tents to Town”
Bozeman’s Historic Main St.
The Bozeman Main Street
Historic District, the heart of
the city of Bozeman and the
only urban environment in
the Gallatin Valley, is
composed of a virtually
uninterrupted streetscape of
commercial buildings along
both sides of four blocks
The district stretches along a segment of the primary, east-west
thoroughfare in the valley, not far from its emergence from the
mountainous Bozeman Pass. It is bounded at either end by the
two major city landmarks, the six-story Baxter and four-story
Bozeman Hotels. With the exception of a few buildings on Tracy
Avenue and Babcock Street, the entire district is visible from any
point within it on Main Street. Characterizing the district in
general are two story, late 19th and early 20th century brick
commercial blocks of varied height and design. Most have
generally high architectural significance, but few stand out as
exceptional. Bands of colorful, irregular storefronts, canopies,
and signage unify all the buildings at street level, where little
historic fabric survives. Of the 68 buildings in the district, 49 are
architecturally significant. At least another three, while not yet
fifty years old, are nevertheless architecturally important
including the city’s only commercial example of the International
style.

Dale Martin grew up in the Seattle area,
attended Washington State University, excavated
and mapped archaeological sites, inventoried
historic buildings and bridges, and now teaches
history at Montana State University in Bozeman.
Archaeological fieldwork gave him a great
appreciation for seeing and doing history outdoors
and urban settings, near bakeries and pubs.

“Gracious Gables”
Bozeman’s Historic Manors
Bozeman’s finest examples of historic residential architecture,
spanning from the early 1880’s to the mid-1930s, constitute the bulk
of the 228 buildings in the Bon Ton Historic District. The brick and
frame houses of the district line three long, north-south running
streets, South Third Avenue, South Grand Avenue, and South Willson
Avenue, and the east-west running West Cleveland Street at the
southern end. The Italianate, Queen Anne, Colonial Revival,
Bungalow, and other styles are well represented in the district.
Many houses display towers, wrap-around porches, and elaborate
ornamentation in brick and wood.
In 1935, elegant concrete lamp posts were installed lining both
South Willson Avenue, a major thoroughfare through town which is
wider than the others, and West Cleveland Street, the location of
many fine Depression era houses. These lamp posts hel; to establish
the southern and eastern borders of the district. To the south of the
district are several blocks of predominantly non-contributing World
War II, while to the east is the South Tracy – South Black Historic
District. South Fourth Avenue, an unpaved alley, roms a clear
boundary between this district and the Cooper Park Historic District
to the west. North of the district is a cluster of churches which
represent many of Bozeman’s denominations. North of the churches
is the Main Street Historic District.

“Between the Crosses, Row on Row,
That Mark our place”
Veterans in the Sunset Hills
CemeteryThe tour will look at veterans' grave markers and war memorials.
The grave markers show examples of military service such as the
U.S. Kentucky Cavalry during the Civil War and the Army's "Spruce
Division" during the First World War. Among the memorials will be
the GAR Civil War monument and the half-scale Vietnam Veterans
Memorial wall. The tour will explain the features in the cemetery
in the context of how communities in the U.S. and beyond
remember those who served and those who died in their nations'
wars. There will be references to other memorials in the Bozeman
area that people may visit on their own.
A Walk Through Historic Bozeman
Bozeman’s Historic Churches
Funding for the first church structure was organized by William
White Alderson, John Bozeman being the first to donate $25.
William Beall built the frame structure and the first service was
held on July 28, 1867. Being the first church in town, all
denominations used it alternately. Soon the Methodists had
their own building, then the Episcopalians, and then the
Catholics. We’ll visit these early churches and give you the
history behind their building and the politics each played in the
building of Bozeman.

Bozeman’s Historic Southside
The south side of Bozeman historically held the foundational
establishments of Bozeman’s beginnings including the Emerson
School, the post office, Flanders Sawmill and lumber yard, Dokken-
Nelson Funeral Home and many churches. The south side also held
the homes of many prominent founding families including the
Lester and Emma Willson house, the Julia Martin House, the
Mendenhall House, and the Lamme House. Join us to learn about
Bozeman’s historic south side neighborhood, a microcosm of
Bozeman’s burgeoning town.

“The Whistle Stop Tour”
Bozeman’s Breweries and Railways
The northeast portion of Bozeman hosted two of the dominant
sectors of the local economy in the early 20th century. Two railways
connected Bozeman with the nation, and enabled the products
of Gallatin Valley's farms to compete in national markets. For
decades, the Northern Pacific passenger station on Front Street was
Bozeman's focus of intercity travel and, until 1921, the northern
terminus of Bozeman's street railway. Products of the valley's farms
were stored and processed in, and shipped from, buildings and
structures served by railway spurs. Major activities included storing
wheat in grain elevators, making flour and cereals in mills, brewing
beer, and packing dry peas at seed companies. In addition,
warehouses received fresh produce shipped in by rail and held
perishables in cold storage. The houses of northeastern Bozeman,
clearly smaller and plainer than many that dominated
streetscapes south of Main Street, were residences of workers and
their families.

“Ghosts of Bozeman’s Past”
Historic Sunset Hills Cemetery
Set atop a peaceful overlook, Bozeman’s historic Sunset Hills
Cemetery offers a panoramic view of downtown while each
evening’s sunset reflects the nature of its quiet inhabitants.
Established in 1865, the early residents of Bozeman laid their loved
ones to rest in this sanctified ground overlooking the town that
their toil and labor helped establish. Join us to learn about
Bozeman’s early movers and shakers and the stories that make up
the town’s historical narrative.
