Constructed in 1908, the Cathedral of Saint Helena is easily recognized by its twin spires and the north tower contains fifteen hand-cast bells. It held its first mass in 1914 and survived a significant earthquake in 1935! The building was added to the national register of historic places in 1980 and stands to this day as a major icon in the queen city.
Built in 1891, the St. Ignatius Mission Church is an example of Gothic revival architecture constructed of bricks made from native clay.
The Bozeman Armory was originally built in 1941, complete with a rifle range, soundproof room and thick floors capable of accommodating military trucks. The historic building now stands as the Kimpton Armory Hotel which combines the old with new architecture.
Built in 1908, the Grave's Hotel in Harlowton offered forty-five rooms for travelers, homesteaders, and visiting railroad dignitaries the most modern accommodations at the time.
Lehrkind Mansion was built in 1898, a two-and-one half story Queen Anne residence which has now been turned into a bed & breakfast.
