Join the Extreme History Project for a walking tour of Bozeman’s North Tracy Historic District on Friday at 6pm. The tour will start in front of the Beall Park Recreation Center located at 415 N. Bozeman Ave. The homes along this stretch of North Tracy Avenue illustrate the extensive residential development that occurred north of Main Street. These homes reflect a mixture of nineteenth-century vernacular forms and later bungalows that span from the 1890s through the 1920s. The historic district offers a cross-section of earlier more elaborate homes, vernacular house forms, and later bungalows that sheltered the working backbone of Bozeman’s economy. This cohesive and well-defined neighborhood is today a vital remnant of Bozeman’s early history. Tours are $7 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, and free for children 12 and under.
