Treasures abound in this tour of Montana’s fascinating past!
A History of Montana in 101 Objects showcases the remarkable collection of artifacts preserved at the Montana Historical Society. Since 1865, the Montana Historical Society has pursued its mission to collect and protect items of significance to Montana’s past for the pleasure and education of residents and visitors. This assemblage of objects and interpretive essays draws attention to the diversity of experiences— the triumphs and the sorrows, the everyday struggles and joys—that made Montana.
Featured objects span a breadth of time and cultures, ranging from a petroglyph, to famous guide and trapper Jim Bridger’s “Hawken” rifle, to the camera owned by legendary Montana photographer Evelyn Cameron. Each artifact is expertly photographed and accompanied by a short interpretive essay written by historians and staff at the Montana Historical Society.
