* * *

      city, seat (1867) of Gallatin county, northern Montana, U.S. It lies at the southern end of the Gallatin River valley. First settled in 1864 and known locally as Missouri, it was renamed for wagon master and trail guide John M. Bozeman (Bozeman, John M.), who guided the first settlers into the Gallatin 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. Inc. village, 1864; town, 1874; city, 1883. Pop. (1990) 22,660; (2000) 27,509.
