NORTHWEST MONTANA HISTORICAL SOCIETY INC
September 29, 2011
The Museum at Central School serves the entire Flathead Valley as an education center for North West Montana history. There are extensive rooms dedicated to Native American, logging and farming history as well as rotating displays for past and present concerns. A wonderful 1895 classroom re-enactment experience is invaluable for local 3rd graders. Many opportunities for volunteers and visitors are available for anyone who wishes to understand this beautiful part of Montana.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The Museum is sharing rotating displays with the Columbia Falls Discovery Center where I live. I am proud to help with the artifact organization ,recording local oral histories, and using the Past Perfect record keeping system to keep track of the history behind each donated item.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Find a way to increase grant monies to help fund the ongoing educational programs and research for historic displays.
