Foster House

Miles City East Main Street Residential Historic District

This American foursquare style home appears to have been designed by prominent architect Brynjulf Rivenes. Built between 1910 and 1914 for businessman George Foster, its compact simplicity is an elegant, individual statement of the prosperity Miles City enjoyed in the early twentieth century. The home features a blending of the newest Craftsman and Prairie styles then originating in Chicago and was included in Buchanan’s 1911 booster book, Seeing Miles City.
