Black Addition - Capitol Hills

Bozeman’s Bon Ton Historic District stretches along the 200-1000 blocks of South Willson Avenue, South Grand Avenue, South Third Avenue and West Cleveland Street. The district is home to a unique combination vernacular and high style residential architecture and has a period of significance spanning from 1880 to 1937. The presence of larger homes on larger lots distinguishes the Bon Ton Historic District from the adjacent Cooper Park Historic District to the west and the South Tracy/ South Black Avenue Historic District to the east.
