Encyclopedia Article for Bozeman

city, seat (1867) of Gallatin county, northern Montana, U.S. It lies at the southern end of the Gallatin River valley.

The basic farm economy (wheat and livestock) is supplemented by lumbering; tourism is particularly important, and Bozeman serves as a gateway to Yellowstone National Park and the Gallatin National Forest, for which it is the headquarters. A federal fish hatchery is nearby at the mouth of Bridger Canyon. The city is the site of the state's land-grant college, founded in 1893 as the Agricultural College of the State of Montana, now Montana State University-Bozeman.
