“My heart beats with admiration for the sturdy farmers of Montana and neighbor states as I recognize that here the war has touched the souls of the people. Here we have the mental and spiritual attitude toward the needs of our nation and our allies and the cry of stricken humanity and regard sacrifice as a privilege and the opportunity to give real joy.” • “Sowing the Seeds of Victory,” Montana Farm Bureau history in 1918.

While I love shooting landscapes, I have found that I also love to shoot something of historical importance. Some of you from the Southeast Montana region may know of a ghost town just North of Forsyth by the name of Vananda. It was established as a town in 1908 and was used by the Milwaukee Railroad as a water stop to replenish the steam locomotives. Vananda saw some good years between 1908 and into the 1920's and drew in many homesteaders into the area. By the 1920's, however, people learned that the region was far too arid for farming and a few years later the great depression set in and people were driven out. Today, most of the buildings that once occupied Vananda are all gone. A couple of houses still remain but the one that catches everyone's eye as they pass by on the highway is the giant brick school that sits as a giant landmark on the open Montana prairie. It's a pinnacle of the past and quite frankly, it intrigues me. The feeling of the past can be felt deep in my bones whenever I am in its presence. You can almost feel the souls of the children run and play around you as if you had gone back in time 100 years. On a sunny day, the way the light comes through some of the windows and shines on certain parts of the interior almost give it new life and paints a new picture of the past. It's certainly a place where I could sit and listen to the sounds, watch the sunlight do it's work, and feel the people from 100 years ago. In these images, an old toilet sits in it's stall surrounded by crumbled debris and an student desk sits in front of the Vananda School. • • • • • • • • • • • • #montana #montanamoment #montanalove #montanahistory #southeastmontana #abandoned #blackandwhite #haunted #canon #canon5dmkiv #journalism
How about this unique duplex in Butte? Did you know that turn-of-the-century brick buildings in Butte were made from locally sourced “soft brick”. Many buildings made of this brick are now crumbling and many homeowners resort to painting the brick to preserve it. —-> Swipe for the history. 📷: @historicmontana . . . #historicmontana #preservation #historic #1899 #brickwork #brick #historicpreservation #restored #restoration #historicduplex #archi_ologie #archidaily #Butte #montana #montanahistory #buttemontana #montanahistoricarchitecture #exteriordesign #architecture #restoration #restore #beautifulbutte #gambrel #architecturelovers #revitalization #historylover #historicarchitecture #historicbuildings #historicbuilding #victorianera #victorian
Rick Foster standing inside the hoist building at the old Steward Mine yard in Butte, Montana. Rick worked here as an underground miner when he was 18. It was his first job out of high school, and he said it was the best job he ever had. Originally from rural West Virginia, Rick moved to Butte when he was a teenager. He is standing on the spot where they placed dead bodies after men died in the mine. It is estimated that over 2500 men lost their lives in the mines of Butte. From my doc series entitled, “Landmark District,” about life in the largest historical landmark district in the United States. Photography by @shoshanafink.

Montana, here we come! I'm so freakin' excited. 🎉🎉🎉 Woooooooooooohooooooooooo. Can you tell??? We're driving there and then Lorelei and I are flying back. That's a 30+ hour drive and then a flight with an almost two year old ....by myself. Yikes! (Uh- wait, why am I doing this?) BUT if you're in the Missoula area or along our driving route, I would love to connect. DM me. 🤗
“The Township of Whitehall was recognized by the Jefferson County commissioners on September 30, 1890, after first being a station for the Northern Pacific and Montana Railroad.” Another small town with some great historic homes and buildings. We were able to find the b&w photo on the internet, the school is no longer standing next to this gymnasium. 📷: @historicmontana . . . #historicmontana #preservation #historic #brickwork #brick #historicpreservation #deservetopreserve #restoration #historicgym #archi_ologie #archidaily #Whitehall #whitehallmontana #montana #montanahistory #montanahistoricarchitecture #exteriordesign #exploremontana #travelmontana #visitmt #architecture #gymnasium #architecturelovers #revitalization #historylover #historicarchitecture #historicbuildings #historicbuilding
Let 'er buck! Generation 1 of Montana Bones, Jim Carrig was a founding first year member of MSU's Rodeo team. He went on to College Nationals and won at the Corn Palace in California. However, it's amazing how some of the most impressive people never brag. #montanabones #therealdeal #msurodeo #msu #bozemanmontana #saddlebronc #rodeohistory #montanahistory #cowboys #cornpalace #cornpalacestampederodeo
The story of Shep is tragically beautiful. A story of timeless loyalty. A friend that awaited a railway return which ultimately was his last devotion. Cheers Shep. #shep #fortbenton #loyalty #dogsofinstagram #notforgotten #montanahistory
Yes, it was that beautiful today! This will be a great location for the start of @beaverheadmarathon , same place Lewis & Clark Corps of Discovery met the Shoshone Indians. Sacajawea was reunited with her brother at Camp Fortunate. He then gave them horses to cross the divide into Idaho. Mr. Cook would be proud. #runthebeav #montanahistory #art #montanamoment #montana #beaverhead #beaverheadriver #running #run
In its heyday, the racetrack at the Lewis and Clark Fairgrounds was quite the happening and elegant place.

Did you know copper and Andrew aren't my only loves? I love vintage and antique jewelry as well. I have a collection that spans decades and I want to share some of my favorite pieces with you. I also love researching each piece because every piece has a story to tell.. In 1954 Father Emmet G. Hoffman arrived in Ashland, Montana on the Northern Cheyenne Indian reservation with the job of closing the poorly financed St. Lebre school that was founded in 1884. He ended up staying for over fifty years helping the native community and becoming an Honorary Cheif of the Northern Cheyenne. "With help from donors, Father built a 5,000 square foot factory, founded three industries, rebuilt a sawmill and facilitated the construction of dozens of homes, three churches, three schools, five homes for neglected and abused children and beginning funds for what later became Dull Knife Memorial College. In all, Father helped educate thousands of native children and built an endowment to provide full college scholarships for many deserving high school graduates." In the early 1960's, with help from the tribe, Father Emmet helped build a factory to bring jobs to the reservation where unemployment was high. The pendant in the palm of my hand was made in that factory. It is a piece of Montana history with a multi-faceted story to tell. Stay tuned as every Saturday I will showcase pieces from my personal collection and share the stories behind them. #montanacopperqueen #vintagejewelry #collector #collection #turquoise #jewelrycollection #stlebreindianschool #history #montanahistory #madeinmontana #native #nativemontana #vintage #montana #northerncheyenne #educateyourself #dogood #bethechange #storyteller #jewelry #sterlingsilver #silver #rings #bakelite #vintagebakelite #storyteller #storytelling #sharing #educationispower #educate #humanities
We had a great time partnering with the @thegallatinhistorymuseum on a presentation to the Bozeman Preservation Advocacy Group and @extremehistoryproject. The Open Lands Levy provides funding to protect the agricultural heritage of our valley. Our history, and our soils, are rich! A new agricultural heritage exhibit is opening at the museum soon. . . . #takethelongview #heritage #agheritage #longlivefamilyfarms #bozeman #montanahistory
“St. James Community Hospital in Butte, first part constructed in 1881 started by two Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth. With the sudden growth of Butte, they expanded in 1889, 1895, 1906, & 1915. This building was closed in 1962 and operations were moved to a more modern site.” Info provided by @mtstandard 📷: @historicmontana . . . #historicmontana #preservation #historic #1881 #brickwork #brick #historicpreservation #deservetopreserve #restoration #historichospital #archi_ologie #archidaily #Butte #buttemontana #montana #montanahistory #montanahistoricarchitecture #exteriordesign #exploremontana #travelmontana #visitmt #architecture #haunted #architecturelovers #revitalization #historylover #historicarchitecture #historicbuildings #historicbuilding #beautifulbutte

Thanks to these two, Bacon and Dolly, we have a family pie recipe that has been helping us celebrate holidays for almost 100 years. Yesterday on the blog, we posted the story about how these two married in Montana in the 1920's and then stayed there for 60 years while Bacon worked for the National Pacific Railroad as a train clerk and conductor and Dolly wrote poetry. They lived in two converted rail cars, ate fresh-caught trout for breakfast, perfected their baking skills to delicious levels and loved their beautiful state until their very last days. In addition to a little history about Montana in the early days, find Bacon's recipe for homemade pie crust also included in the post. -- -- -- #oldphoto #montana #family #recipeoftheday #1950sfashion #greatgrandparents #pie #menwhobake #rhubarbpie #easterfood #familytradition #mountains #railroadlife #poet #trainconductor #history #wildwest #vintagefashion #montanahistory
Part 4 of 4 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (3 years later: one of the last times I saw Bob. RIP) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ME: Excuse me, what are you looking at? BOB MARTIN: I’m viewing the tops of the mountains I can no longer climb. ME: ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These days as I watch Sugar slowing down and just enjoying laying on her bed watching the world out the window, I am reminded of my friend, Bob, who I met one day in 2010 when I drove into a wildlife viewing area and found him perched on his stool in his signature red hat (he was one of the first #smokejumpers in MT), Levi’s, and suspenders. I visited with him over the following months and got to know him over the next few years before he passed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think Sugar is now the same age Bob was when I met him, 94. And they both have the same attitude about life: adjusting their abilities and passions to their new limitations without losing their lust for life. Bob would only hunt deer on his land he could get to on his tractor and used a ladder to hop in and out of the back of his truck to show off his winter’s meat. He was proud of the bear tooth marks in his kitchen counter from the time his house was broken into. He ate breakfast out everyday since his wife of 57 years passed, driving 60 miles r/t from his home in the Swan Valley, and then once a week volunteered to play banjo at the assisted living facilities in the area. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some things Bob told me: “At 16 I moved to the Swan Valley after leaving home on a farm in Oregon in 1934. Things were just bad there. And ever since I got here I've had friends.” // “The oldest man in the world, here in Montana, just turned 114 and I can't believe that's all the time I might have left.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #montanahistory #swanvalley #montana #myfriendbobmartin

Ghost town exploring. We love driving to these random places and checking out what used to be. For me, I always want to see the authentic. I don't want to see the commercialized or our modern version of what we think went on back then. Bannack did not disappoint. Brandon and I were the only ones exploring at one point, with the wind sweeping across the dirt road, the occasional creak of a gate swinging in the breeze, and the silence that met us everywhere we went. I loved every minute of it.

“Dillon was founded in the Beaverhead Valley as a railroad town in 1880 by Union Pacific Railroad President Sidney Dillon. The town's location was selected by the railroad because of its proximity to gold mines in the area. While many of the gold mining towns around Dillon died, Dillon was able to stay a thriving town due to the railroad and talc mining in the area. A cattle industry was established in 1865. The agriculturally rich Beaverhead Valley became an ideal location for sheep ranching that was introduced in 1869. With a large sheep-ranching community in the Dillon area, Dillon was once the largest exporter of sheep wool in Montana. The Montana Normal College was established as a teaching college in 1892, and is still functioning today, renowned for its Education program.” 📷: @historicmontana
Found a little bit of Montana history on a job visit yesterday. This was a six inch copper fire riser made by the Anaconda Copper Company. The Fire riser was located in one of the Mill buildings that's main products was lumber for the Butte Copper Mines. It's interesting seeing products of two Montana industries supporting each other. #montanahistory #coppermine #richesthillonearth

As we start to remodel the storage end of our train depot, I’m trying to document the walls. Covered in bits of paper, news articles and graffiti it’s these hits that give some real character. We have plans to bring a lot of these boards back into our house to keep it true to character. #traindepothouse #remodeling #montanahistory #localhistory

I call this painting "Out to Pasture". I was near Rudyard, Montana when I saw it sitting in a field of high grass and next to the towns most prominent structures - grain elevators.

A story of family history: My great grandfather owned a successful bar & steakhouse in Billings, MT that had a poker room in the back. My father wants to do a painting of the bar inside of the steakhouse. As he was searching online for potential old photographs of the bar, a guy on eBay was selling a 5¢ token (seen here) from that steakhouse. #familyhistory #montanahistory #oldschooltokens #billingsmontana

“Into this land of spiritual strength I have been privileged to guide, over the years, thousands of people - the old, the young, the great and small people like myself. I have harvested a self-sustaining resource of the forest, a resource of vast importance. No one word will suffice, but to explain this resource, let us call it the hush of the land. This hush is infinitely more valuable to me than money or my business. The people who travel into this wild mountain land are having a deep and soul-satisfying experience, that of finding their relationship with living things and eternal mountains, a Montana way of life, the fulfillment of knowing themselves better. Every one of us who travels this country knows that a highway up the Continental Divide - or into the Danaher, up Dwight Creek, Cabin Creek, the North Fork - simply means the end. The wilderness...will be gone forever.” . . - Hobnail Tom” Edwards, legendary outfitter, during congressional testimony regarding the creation of the Scapegoat Wilderness in 1968 . . 📷 by Aaron Theisen #wildmt #picturewildmt #scapegoatwilderness #hobnailtom #thehushoftheland #wildernessquotes #crownofthecontinent #montanahistory #bobmarshallwilderness #montanaoutfitters
