The details (from wikipedia)


Byron Vreeland (1844-1889) was an American architect practicing in Bozeman and Miles City, Montana, where he pioneered the profession.


Vreeland's early life and education are unknown, though he was trained as an architect. In the late 1870s he and his brother, builder Frank W. Vreeland, arrived in Bozeman. The two brothers established the firm of B. & F. W. Vreeland, architects and builders. By 1882 Frank W. Vreeland had retired from the firm, and was replaced by Herman Kemna. Simultaneously with this event, Vreeland relocated to Miles City, then a boomtown. Vreeland & Kemna operated until 1887, when Vreeland returned to Bozeman and Kemna went to Helena. He died in 1889.

At least two of Vreeland's works have been placed on the National Register of Historic Places, and several others contribute to at least three listed historic districts.
