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 DreamA River Runs Through ItA 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.  If you’re skiing at Big Sky, you could literally run into your favorite celebrity or professional athlete.  Bozeman is also an up-and-coming foodie town.  We have very few chain restaurants because people here want the unique experience of dining local—from pizzerias that feature southwest Montana’s best home-grown ingredients to steakhouses that showcase local grass-fed and sustainably raised beef.
