1. Dr. Gray Residence Marker
Inscription.  A sophisticated blend of Classical elements characterizes this intimately elegant residence that, despite its modest size, easily rivals the district’s grander “high style” homes. Built in 1907, the residence was then “out in the country,” its urbane design foreshadowing the district’s impending growth. Renowned Montana architect Charles S. Haire drew the plans for prominent local physician Dr. Francis Gray, who was a charter staff member of Holy Rosary Hospital and served as county coroner. A pedimented porch with simple Tuscan columns and paneled balustrade defines the Classical Revival style. Exquisite oak trim, windowseats, and a columned archway grace the well-appointed interior.
 
Erected by Montana Historical Society.
