Famous Baxter Hotel neon sign re-lit in Bozeman

BOZEMAN - You can't live in Bozeman without seeing the iconic Baxter
and its trademark neon sign. A re-lighting ceremony was held
Thursday night on Main Street.

City officials and Sen. Max Baucus
were on hand for the celebration as the 40-year
dormant sign graced the
Bozeman skyline once again.

"It definitely will reset the
Bozeman skyline and we're thinking that you'll be able to see it
you're flying into town, or from quite far away," Amy McDonald, Baxter
Hotel General Manager, said.

Most of the sign is original with only the paint and the neon itself needing to be replaced during refurbishment.
