Significance: The built environment of Northern Cheyenne Agency evolved in a manner similar to other Indian agencies in Montana. The federal government established the agency a few years after the creation of the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in 1884. Throughout its history, Northern Cheyenne Agency served as the location from which the government implemented its Indian policy among the Northern Cheyenne Tribe. BIA operations at the agency included the administration of a variety of agricultural, educational, medical and maintenance programs. Buildings at the agency housed these operations as well as BIA employees. Between the late 1800's, and the early 1940's, under a systematic construction program, agency buildings underwent a steady process of modernization that peaked with the 1930's New Deal construction programs.
