Inscription.  The Prairie style is well represented in this two-story America Fou1915. A low hipped roof, extended eaves with exposed rafter tails, symmetrical façade, and lap siding emphasize horizonal lines. These architectural features especially distinguish the historic district. David and Madge Brumbaugh moved to Billings in 1915 and for the next forty years made their home here. David was agent and chief inspector for the Western Weighing and Inspection Bureau. The Brumbaughs were exceptionally active in their adopted community. A veteran of the Spanish American War, David served as commander of the local United Spanish War Veterans group. He also served in the Montana House of Representatives, on the Billings City Council and local school board, was active in fraternal organizations, and was a reader in the Christian Science church. Madge ran a popular neighborhood grocery on 9th Avenue adjacent to the home. She also was very active in auxiliary and community organizations. The Brumbaughs passed away within several months of each other in 1955.
