Comments: That is the most beautiful picture ever! Nice Job! Where can I get a higher resolution copy?
Admin reply: Some of the pictures on the site belong to the Museum and can be purchased for $5.00 + postage. Many are from the private collection of our very talented web master. I imagine you are referring to the beautiful picture of the Beaverhead Pioneers gathered above the Beaverhead Rock. This was created by the web master. You could inquire through his web site: www.glendalemontana.com which has a spot at the bottom of the home page for eMail.

Comments: A million thanks to Maralyn, for visiting with us last week in the museum. We stopped by to show the kids the WWII exhibit and the Purple Heart, earned by Beaverhead County's Frank Buyan after his death in a POW camp in the Philippines. We ended up visiting with Maralyn, a native of our town, Littleton. She has just as much to share about our town as she does about Dillon! What a treasure! Maralyn, if you would send me an email regarding your house in Littleton, I need to know the corner it is on, and which house, as it seems the numbers have changed. See you all next time.

Sure wish I was closer to actually go look around the area. Thank you for making photos and info available to those of us who cannot get there. Aloha!

Comments: I've been looking through archives of Wisdom and the area around it. Specifically, I've been trying to find out more about the area or town of Bowen, Montana, where my father was born in August 1901. His father's name was Virgil McNight Dunbar. I have seen the name of Bowen on an old map, but haven't been able to find it since. The Lawrence family was listed as an early family in the Big Hole Valley and they were friends of the Virgil Dunbar family. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
Admin reply: If you would like to contact the Beaver Head Hunters genealogy group on this web page they have many records on families in Beaverhead County.

Comments: Where is Bannock City, Montana? I have a bunch of old photos and letters from Bannock City.
Admin reply: Dear Mr. Dempsey, Bannock City was Montana's first Territroial Capital and is located near present day Dillon, Montana. It is now a State Park which hosts thousands of visitors each year. Bannock City derived it's name from the Bannock Indian Tribe but the United States Postal Service mistakenly changed the spelling to Bannack and the name has remained since. Please include your email address so that a member of the museum staff can contact you in regards to the old photos and letters should you be interested in sharing the contents with us. These would be extremely valuable in helping us peice together the area's history and provide us with a rare glimpse into our area's history.

Comments: I wanted to add your museum to my GPS system so that it would take me directly to the museum. No where on the web site could I find the address or directions to the museum. You know where it is, but it would help me to see an address.
Admin reply: Thank you for visiting our site. Here is our physical address for your "GPS" unit.
