If you live in an old house or own a business in an old building, the Extreme History Project is offering an interesting program on Saturday that will teach you how to find out the history behind your home or historic building.

You'll learn how to uncover the history of a house or a historic building, whether it is 50 years old or 150 years old. Local experts will also share their knowledge on research techniques and you'll be instructed on how to read maps, research historic photographs, city directories, and many other tools.

In addition, you will take a tour of Bozeman's north side with architect, Lesley Gilmore, and historian Cheryl Hendry. You'll learn how to do historic land records research with Gallatin County Clerk and Recorder, Eric Semerad, and get hands-on practice using historic resources at the Gallatin History Museum.
