Historic T.B. Story Mansion
The Story family name is a cornerstone of Bozeman history. Our physical surroundings, our agricultural heritage and our spirit are, in part, a result of the individual efforts of Nelson Story, a true pioneer. T. Byron Story, one of Nelson’s sons, is a direct connection to this history. His stately home on South Willson Avenue is one of the last physical examples of the era and stands as a symbol of the achievements of the family. In an expression of its commitment to historic preservation, the City of Bozeman purchased the Story Mansion On April 14, 2003.
Shortly after, Comma-Q was selected by the City of Bozeman to undertake an architectural assessment of the property. In 2005 the firm was selected again to oversee exterior stabilization work. Replacement of rotted wood trim, masonry cleaning and restoration, and exterior painting were but a few of the tasks that were undertaken as part of the project. In 2007 Comma-Q oversaw the Window Replacement portion of the exterior stabilization, including the restoration of the leaded diamond window sashes. Most recently Comma-Q continued to assist the City of Bozeman in realizing public use of the first floor of the Mansion with completion of basement and first floor renovations.
