DescriptionBozeman was named for John Bozeman, who brought the first wagon train of pioneers to settle the Gallatin Valley. The trail he blazed became not only a highway for settlers and miners but also a flash point between the Native Americans and the settlers. Three years after bringing settlers to the valley, Bozeman was killed by the Sioux, and his trail remained unused for 9 years because of repeated attacks upon wayfarers.
The valley that Bozeman helped settle once was a neutral and sacred hunting ground known to Native Americans as the “Valley of the Flowers.” The area has blossomed into one of the state's more agriculturally productive regions.
