Bozeman, Montana, has a history still alive with the remnants of by-gone days and sustains a local heritage that can still be found throughout the community with nine historical districts and more than 40 individual properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The town of Bozeman provides a very unique environment for a different kind of a lifestyle and often tops lists of best places to live. It is blessed with relatively good weather, outstanding scenery, unparalleled recreational opportunities, world-class fishing, plenty of cultural activities, galleries, museums, and the like. Tech start-up companies are prevalent and growing in the area.

The Bozeman area has served as a filming site for a number of films, including The Wildest Dream, A River Runs Through It, A Plumm Summer and Amazing Grace and Chuck. Bozeman is a short (and beautiful) drive to Yellowstone National Park. Big Sky resort draws the world's wealthiest people as well as A-list celebrities.
