Tell us your story!

"In a world that is constantly changing, old places provide people with a sense of being part of a continuum that is necessary for them to be psychologically and emotionally healthy." 

-- Thompson Mayes, Why Do Old Places Matter, Savingplaces.org

There is more to telling the story of our built environment beyond preserving big houses and places of traditional standards of architectural beauty. Preservation is about intangible heritage and stories that represent everyone in our community. We are looking to our community to create a people centered preservation movement that honors a diversity of our stories and ensures that there is representation of all people. 

We call on you to tell us your stories and how it relates to Bozeman and the Gallatin Valley. They can be about the house you live in, your family heritage, the connection you have to the land, or fun facts about Bozeman that not many people know about! Our hope with learning these stories is to tell more narratives, tie it to Bozeman's history, and promote it to the community. Tell us your story below or send it to Sarah Rosenberg, Historic Preservation Officer, srosenberg@bozeman.net
