Western Justice Associates is located in the historic Ferguson House in Downtown Bozeman at the intersection of 3rd Street and West Mendenhall Street. The Ferguson House was constructed by Enoch Douglass Ferguson at the end of the 19th century. The original three-storey structure had over 5,000 sq. feet of living space for Mr. Ferguson, his wife Brunetta, and their children, Veda and Enoch Jr.
Mr. Ferguson was described in the 1903 publication, Progressive Men of the State of Montana, as being one of the few surviving Montana pioneers “who made the memorable expedition into the Yellowstone National Park in 1874 . . . which essayed the exploration of that wonderful section of our national domain.” The book also notes that Mr. Ferguson lived in a “beautiful modern residence in Bozeman which has been his home for a number of years.”
The Ferguson House has gone through several changes since it served as the Ferguson’s family home. As was the fate of many grand old Victorian residences, the Ferguson House was modified into a multi-unit apartment building shortly after WWII to make more efficient use of its space. In the mid-1980s, the building was yet again transformed, this time into office space. The Ferguson House then served for over 20 years as the regional offices of Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company. During the early 2000s, the lower two floors of the Ferguson House served as retail space.
Each of these uses took an understandable toll on the grand old home. Since acquiring the Ferguson House in 2008, Western Justice Associates have endeavored to restore much of the interior of the building to its original grandeur. We look forward to continuing the restoration process in the years to come, and to further returning this wonderful fixture of Downtown Bozeman to its former stature.
