Your Tour Guides

L_Rowe

History—especially the history of the American West—has always interested Linda Rowe. She says, “Volunteering as a tour guide for the Extreme History Project is really fun. So many tours are made up of long-time Bozeman residents as well as visitors. I learn something new on every tour.” Semi-retired, Linda also enjoys travel, knitting and good food!

 

 


 

Tonya Weber is originally from Central Illinois but moved to Bozeman two years ago Tonyawith a truck full of stuff and her trusty cow dog at her side and hasn’t looked back. She has an undergraduate degree in Psychology and an MBA but thinks that history is pretty rad too. Look for Tonya Saturday nights all summer long as she regales her guests with tales of Murders, Madams and Mediums in old Bozeman.

 


BZ16 Elizabeth Noonan, originally from Chicago, has called Montana home for almost 25 years. She fell in love with the history of Bozeman after “discovering” Robert Redford’s footprints on North Wallace. Other discoveries include Bozeman Creek, which runs through downtown, and the original name of Wilson Avenue. When not rediscovering Bozeman she is a baker, teacher, and improviser.

 

Jjuliaulia Strehlau Jacobs is a 31-year old German native who just recently moved to Bozeman. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in American Studies from the University of Leipzig, and her Master’s degree in Anglo-American Literature, Language and Culture from the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg in Germany. As a foreign exchange student to MSU she explored courses in the History as well as the Native American Studies departments in 2011/12. She returned to Bozeman in the winter of 2014 to research on the Crow tribe and visited the Crow reservation. American culture and history have always been part of her journey. These became passions and hopefully will develop into a career. Traveling, hanging out with friends and being around family are Julia’s free time activities. She also loves riding her bike, listening to music, and being out in nature.
