Funding for the first church structure was organized by William White Alderson, John Bozeman being the first to donate $25. William Beall built the frame structure and the first service was held on July 28, 1867. Being the first church in town, all denominations used it alternately. Soon the Methodists had their own building, then the Episcopalians, and then the Catholics. We’ll visit these early churches and give you the history behind their building and the politics each played in the building of Bozeman.
