The history of African Americans in each Montana city
is unique, involving different people, places, and stories. The Identifying Montana’s African American
Heritage Places Project has compiled synopsis histories of nine cities that
had African American populations in the late 19
th and early 20th
centuries. In addition, Historic
Property Record Forms for significant structures in those nine cities are also
available by clicking on the city pictures below.
