The museum resides in the former Methodist Church building, built in 1911. As with most small Montana museums, the exhibits focus on the history of the area. Exhibits include a one-room homesteader household. The clothes washing equipment display has more items than can be listed. If you’ve heard of the different ways clothes have been washed throughout the decades, you can bet they are all included in this display. U.S., English, German and Japanese made rifles and shotguns are represented in a wide array of guns on display, some date back to 1826. Inside a display case is a beautiful collection of antique dishes, including cut glass, carnival glass, and assorted china, some 75 to 100 years old. A unique military display encompasses uniforms from World War I through the Korean Conflict. A World War I uniform is complete with a gas mask. The museum is open from the end of May through middle September.
