Wheatfields, Railroads, and Brewers: Exploring Bozeman's Historic North Side

Overview

Embark on a historic journey with The Extreme History Project and Tinworks Art. 

This historic exploration takes you through Bozeman's northside landscape, highlighting the vital roles that agriculture, the railroad, and brewers took in shaping the town's growth. Wander through the heart of Bozeman's agricultural legacy, where towering grain elevators stand as monuments to the industrious spirit of the 19th century. Discover the storied history of the Lehrkind brewing family at the location of the historic brewery, a testament to the vibrant local brewing tradition. As you stroll through the working-class neighborhoods, you'll gain a deeper appreciation for the community's enduring heritage and the hard-working individuals who built Bozeman into the thriving town it is today. Each tour in this series will feature a local expert who will take a deeper dive into their area of expertise.

Each tour will start and end at Tinworks Art. We recommend parking near the train depot on Ida Ave and walking to meet your group at the entrance.

Please wear comfortable shoes to walk in and dress for changing weather conditions. A water bottle is recommended as well.
