The Downtown Historic District is Bozeman’s treasure of treasures. With direct access to Main Street, Montana State University and the redeveloping Story Mill District, Historic Downtown Bozeman is incredibly vibrant and incredibly diverse. It does not take much of an imagination to understand why homes in this area are a hot commodity!


The Conservation Overlay was adopted in 1991 to preserve the historic integrity and architectural design of Bozeman’s historic neighborhoods. The purpose of the Overlay is to prioritize the maintenance and restoration of structures and to preserve each districts’ unique feel. The Conservation District contains more than 3,000 properties. Most exterior alterations to any structure in this zone must be approved. There are ten historic districts within the Conservation District, each with it’s own distinct qualities and feel. Find a detailed list of these districts as well as a map outlining district boundaries here.
