Story Mansion was completed in 1910 and home to one of Bozeman's most famous residents. Commodities broker T. Byron Story made a fortune supplying the US army with wheat and wool during World War I. However, Bryon's fortunes quickly declined and the 22-room mansion was sold to a college fraternity in 1922. The city of Bozeman purchased the home in 2003, and with the support of preservationists and philanthropists, the Friends of Story Mansion renovated the historic mansion.
