How You Can Help

    We are encouraged by and grateful for the positive support the Bozeman National Historic Trail Project has received from individuals and organizations.  There have been several inquiries on how folks can help support this nationally significant project. This is great news! 

  •  Most beneficial would be letters of support to congressional delegations requesting Congress’ authorization of a feasibility study by the Secretary of the Interior for listing the Bozeman Trail as a National Historic Trail. (see address link)   In your letter of support, please cc this committee, the Bozeman National Historic Trail Committee at:    If sending via USPS, please mail a copy to Bozeman NHT, 528 Wagon Box Road, Banner, WY  82832

  • Express support of the project with your county commissioners and state legislators

  • Help spread the word! Share our website with other organizations and individuals Share with us contacts of interested groups or people such as local historical groups, museums, landowners, and local media. We send monthly updates to interested parties. We are also willing to participate in meetings to discuss our project. Contact us at

  • Speak with your local media and see if they would like to do an article on the Bozeman Trail. Our committee and advisory committee members are able to supply articles and photos of the Trail and sites along the way.

  • Write letters of support to the local media.

  • Contact us if you need additional information. If you find people or leaders of organizations that express concern and/or have any questions, let us know and we will contact them. The concerns thus far have been few and have been addressed and answered assuredly. Our Q&A is informative and helps answers many questions..


Thank you for your interest and outpouring of support of the Bozeman Trail’s long overdue recognition, and helping us along this historic Trail.

The Bozeman National Historic Trail Committee




Designation of the Bozeman Trail as a National Historic Trail will provide clear and lasting documentation of the significance of the Trail and associated events to our national history for current and future generations.

National designation will enhance preservation efforts, education opportunities, and visitor experiences along the trail route and at associated historic sites on public lands where public access is available and prudent.

National Trail status would increase interest in visitation, and hence income at numerous associated historic sites and museums along the trail corridor in Montana and Wyoming.

Increased visitation and longer duration visits to publicly available trail segments and associated sites and museums will directly benefit local economies.
