Virga Capital has made thoughtful design a cornerstone of our approach to community development. We take great care to carefully consider all aspects of a space, from its functionality and sustainability to its aesthetic appeal. By doing so, we are able to create spaces that are not only visually pleasing but also serve the needs of the community. Our dedication to preserving history is also evident in our approach to design, as we seek to retain the unique character and architectural features of historic structures while repurposing them for modern use as often as possible.
In 1918, local resident Michael O’Connell borrowed money from cattle baron T. Byron Story to build a laundry to serve growing Bozeman. For over 100 years the Gallatin Laundry has employed and cleaned our community.
For almost a century, the inner workings of the Gallatin Laundry building were mostly concealed from public view. Only a small portion was accessible to the public during its heyday. The business provided cleaning services for the local community and beyond, earning a solid reputation as one of Montana's top cleaning services.
Virga Capital led a team including Minarik Architecture and Langlas and Associates to thoughtfully restore and preserve this slice of Bozeman history. The Gallatin Laundry building is a prime example of deliberate, adaptive reuse of a historic building already woven into the fabric of Bozeman.
Virga Capital focuses on restoring the original craftsmanship of buildings and honoring their years of use. Our hope is that the Gallatin Laundry sign will continue to shine bright for another 100 years.
