A Guide To Historic Bozeman

Welcome to our Tea and Revolution Book Club! Our book this week compliments our series “Building Community through Historic Preservation.” We’ll be reading Jim Jenks’ book “A Guide to Historic Bozeman” and taking a visual tour through Bozeman’s rich historic architecture. Follow along, won’t you?

We apologize, but due to technical difficulties, we are unable to include  more photos of Main St. at this time. We will try to add more if we can later, but its a good excuse to take the book out and take a walk down Main St. and see the buildings for yourself!

Comments
  1. Historic Preservation is defined by the community. What do you value in our historic environment? What guidelines would you like to see included in discussions about what we save and what we let go?

  2. We are lucky to have such a wealth of historic buildings and homes in Bozeman. Historic preservation is about community collective memory, which comes from individual experience. What buildings, homes or places are important to you? What buildings do you feel are indispensable?

  3. Bozeman’s historic districts retain the feel and flavor of the past throughout their neighborhoods. The districts have not been updated for several decades. What new districts do you think should be added? What other historic neighborhoods should we preserve?
