Bozeman was not built by the Nelson Story’s alone. It took a large community of masons, shopkeepers, brewers, builders and farmers to build Bozeman’s infrastructure in the late 19 century. The North Tracy Avenue Historic District contains the most significant concentration of historic residential architecture north of Main Street and is a representative portion of what was once a quite extensive historic residential area. Some of the houses in the district are among the most significant examples of vernacular architecture in the city. This tour gives an overview of the “working class” or blue collar section of Bozeman. The houses in the North Tracy historic district are modest vernacular structures that show the needs of middle class Bozeman.
