07/16/08 - Randy and I were driving through the North Park neighborhood of Billings in the summer of 2008 and noticed a small corner parking lot with a fluorescent pink sign posted on the property. Of course, Randy jumped out to check it out. Randy didn’t like to think that something might be happening in his town that he didn’t know about. As it turned out, the State of Montana was selling this corner at auction on July 16, 2008 “on the steps” of the Yellowstone County Courthouse. We called for more information and showed up on July 16 ready to bid. Fortunately for us, no one else showed up so we got the property for the minimum bid. The State of Montana had purchased this property on December 15, 1967 for $10.00 and had owned it for 40 years. Needless to say, we did not get it for $10.00 but we felt good about our purchase and as of October 3, 2008, we had the location for the Urban Frontier House.
