Bozeman has changed quite a bit since it was first established in 1864. Today, you can still see evidence of the city's past. Here are four of the oldest buildings in the Bozeman area.
We reached out to the Gallatin History Museum to learn about some of the oldest buildings, and sadly, we found out that there aren't too many that haven't been torn down or modernized.
If you're never been to the Gallatin History Museum, it's a great resource if you're interested in learning more about the history of Bozeman and Gallatin County. The staff at the museum are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. The museum helped us put together this list of "old" Bozeman businesses. Do you remember any of these places?
Bozeman has a lot of history. Just east of town, there's a spot where Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, and Sacagawea reportedly camped in 1806. John Bozeman established the Bozeman Trail in the 1860s and helped found the city of Bozeman in 1864.
Unfortunately, the Gallatin History Museum couldn't tell us exactly what the oldest building in Bozeman is. However, they did send us a list of some of the oldest known structures still standing today.
There are still a few structures from the 1870s that are still standing in Bozeman, but some buildings are even older than that.
