Want to witness a #historical project in the making? Follow @docuhistory.thecoalmineproject to see how it all comes together! This is a project that began Summer 2016, sparked by a suggestion, from my husband, to paint a coal miner referenced from a historical photo in our local #museum . The suggestion morphed into what I'm now working to put together. 40 museum quality pieces, painted on #copper . Referenced from the 800+ photographs and videos taken while spending 6+ hours #underground . That is not including the additional, hours of tours and education received above ground. . The @docuhistory.thecoalmineproject page was created to keep the story together, making it easy to follow. Of course I'll still be working on #portrait commissions and a couple of other conceptual projects along the way. Thanks for following!!! 😃🙌🏼 . . #documenting #modernhistory #coilaevans #artist #montanaartist #americanartist #texasartist #documentary #montanahistory #artcollector #americanartcollector #figurativeart #portraitpainting #selfie #selfportrait #historicalart #impressionist #oiloncopper #montana #406 #buttemontana @hazernovich #oilpainter

Judith Gap #startswithJ From the May 1, 1884 issue of The Rocky Mountain Husbandman (Diamond City, MT) comes this Notice to Stock Growers relating to an area known as Judith Gap, a small gap between the Big Snowy Mountains and Little Belt Mountains, used for centuries by settlers and Native Americans, "including Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce during their famous 1877 flight to Canada." (See Wikipedia article on Judith Gap, Montana) And apparently also used by stock raisers just a few years later. This notice warns "outside parties" that the "undersigned stock growers ... consider said range already overstocked, therefore we positively decline allowing any outside parties ... the use of our corals, nor will they be permitted to join us in any round-up on said range". One of the signatories to the notice is my great grandfather D. Blacker, a stock raiser and miner in Montana during the later half of the 19th century. #genealogyphotoaday #startswithJ #montanahistory #montanastockgrowers #blackerfamily #ancestors #genealogy #familyhistory #speaktheirnames #telltheirstories
Tipi-Burner 1940s Tipi burners were once plentiful in the Missoula Valley, being used by sawmills to burn waste from milling operations. The Clean Air Act and new technologies turning wood waste into pressboard and paper led to the end of the tipi burners in the 1970s. Built in Conner, south of Hamilton, it was moved to the Ravalli County Fairgrounds and later the museum at Fort Missoula.

Lookout! . from buildings.fortmissoulamuseum.org: Sliderock Lookout 1930 - Manufactured in Columbia Falls in 1930, pre-packaged lookouts, similar to this lookout, were shipped throughout a four-state region for assembly on a tower or bare ground. This lookout was dismantled at its site 40 miles southeast of Missoula, atop Sliderock Mountain, and moved to the Museum in 1983 with the assistance from the Friends of the Historical Museum and the Missoula Chapter of the Society of American Foresters. . . . . . . . #firelookout #historic #forestservice #museum #twighlight #missoula #gray #rain #winter #deciduousconifer #montanahistory #mthist
“White is the wold, and ghostly The dank and leafless trees; And 'M's and 'N's are mostly Pronounced like 'B's and 'D's: 'Neath bleak sheds, ice-encrusted, The sheep stands, mute and stolid: And ducks find out, disgusted, That all the ponds are solid.” ~ Charles Stuart Calverley, Dirge . . from buildings.fortmissoulamuseum.org: Built circa 1900, the Hayes Homestead Cabin was once located on the Patrick Hayes homestead east of Missoula in the Potomac Valley. The Hayes family donated it to the Museum in 1974. It is restored to circa 1920 and is now being used for educational programming. . . . . . #historic #homestead #missoula #wagon #montana #log #willow #silhouette #poetry #montanahistory #mthist

Slab-side notching, chinked . . From: buildings.fortmissoulamuseum.org: Built in 1878, this log building is one of the original Fort buildings still standing. The duplex housed noncommissioned officers, civilian employees and regular Army personnel from 1877-1947. It passed into private ownership after 1947 and was being dismantled when it was discovered to be an original Fort building. It was donated to the Museum in 2007 by the Western Montana Ghost Town Preservation Society. . . . #historic #logbuilding #logcabin #missoula #notch #montanahistory #mthist
Found a new documentary, which means time to make a new viewing guide. I learned this practice from my mentor teacher when I student taught. I write down important questions to be answered from the video. I pause the video every ten to fifteen minutes and we answer the questions as a class. It allows for a class discussion on the info and I’m able to relate it back to what we’ve studied. There is something about having a moving picture that makes students engaged and connected 🤣 The downside- it means a lot of rewinding and rewording to get the questions just right 😬 And even then, it’s a rough draft in extreme need of revision! #teachersofig #teachertricks #iteachsixth #montanahistory

We are big fans of the Montana Historical Society and the Herd Bull by Sioux artist Benji Daniels and Montana sculptor James Hadcock. When it is cold and snowy, the art seems just right. #montanabones #helenamt #montanahistoricalsociety #montana #406 #siouxartist #lastbestplace #montanahistory

Thirty-two years ago this week, people in my hometown, with the help of countless others, erected the third-tallest statue in America. I remember watching Our Lady of the Rockies being flown up the mountain is pieces. Quite the spectacle in the schoolyards around town! It’s a point of pride for anyone from Butte, America and is a testament to the fortitude and “get it done” attitude of that wonderful town. If you ever get a chance, take the ride to the base (elevation 8,510) - the views are incomparable! #ourladyoftherockies #butteamerica #buttemontana #aintnoplacelikeit #montana #montanahistory #mthistoricalsociety #thelastbestplace #bigskycountry
SEEIN' SANTA by C.M. Russell, 1910. Charlie Russell knew cold winters. Note the startled rider's breath...and his liquor bottle. In the early 1880s Russell worked as a sheepherder and a trapper. Additionally, Russell worked as a cowhand in the severe winter of 1886-87 that killed about 60 percent of the cattle in Montana. Several of Russell’s best known works depict that winter. Jack Coffrin, who operated Coffrin's Old West Gallery in Miles City, believed that C.M. Russell was to western art as L.A. Huffman was to Old West photography...that both perfectly captured the West. Russell lived in Montana from 1880 until his death in 1926. (Stretch to enlarge image.) #charlierussell #charlesrussell #cmr #charlesmarionrussell #art #painting #painter #Montana #montanahistory
Assembling Our Lady of the Rockies required the help of the Nevada Air National Guard with support from the Montana Army National Guard, the U.S. Army Reserve from Butte, and teams of civilian workers. #ButteMontana #MontanaHistory #Montana #PhotoOfTheDay #OurLadyOfTheRockies

Time for a history lesson 💎 The Yogo dike. Here are some pictures of the Yogo dike, or "the cut" as we call it. The cut runs for 5 miles and varies in depth and thickness from 2 to 26 feet. These pictures are taken from the English Mine site. I believe that almost all of the mining on the cut was done late 1890's to 1923. The host Ore holding the Yogos mined with pic and hand tools and hauled to weathering heaps by railways. I have read somewhere that the English Mine worked about 20 miners. Most of those men were recruited from Butte and Helena mining operations. During this time it is estimated that 16 million carat of rough Yogos were found. Scroll through and imagine how much work that had to be to move all that rock. These pictures are just a tiny portion of the cut. Pretty Amazing! See Montana Yogo Sapphire jewelry from this area at my Etsy store.
