With 10 unique historic districts and 46 individually listed properties on the National Register of Historic Places, the City of Bozeman Preservation Program serves to provide guidance, information, and technical assistance to property owners, community partners and those interested in Bozeman’s historic built environment.

Historic Preservation is an established priority of city planning in Bozeman. Preservation goes beyond saving old buildings, it creates a unique sense of place, a sense of community and bridges the gap between the past and our future. Preservation is about recognizing and celebrating what our community values and ensuring it can be enjoyed by future generations.

Preserving Bozeman's History

The City of Bozeman adopted the Neighborhood Conservation Overlay District (NCOD) in 1991. The goal of the zoning overlay is to conserve neighborhood character, protect the integrity of historic structures and provide public notice to adjoining property owners of potential changes. The Bozeman Design Guidelines for Historic Preservation & Neighborhood Conservation Overlay District provide guidelines for appropriate work within the NCOD.
