LIVING HISTORY FARM
MOR’S WORKING MONTANA HOMESTEAD CIRCA THE LATE 1800’S
May 26 – September 9, 2018 | 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
In 1989, the Tinsley House was relocated to Museum of the Rockies, and the history of Montana’s homesteading era was recreated at MOR’s Living History Farm. Our skilled costumed interpreters will take you back in time as they cook over a wood-burning stove, demonstrate cooking skills and recipes from the 1890s, tend to the Heirloom Garden, and forge iron in the blacksmith’s shop. Take time this summer to enjoy the beautiful sights of the garden, the smells of home cooking, and the history of a time gone by that lives on today.
Celebrate 125 years of Agriculture at Montana State University
Since its founding as The Agricultural College of the State of Montana in 1893, Montana State University College of Agriculture and Montana’s Agriculture Experiment Station have produced various grain cultivars for farmers and ranchers. This summer at the Living History Farm, step back in time and see living examples of the grains grown in the early 1900s. Celebrate 125 years of agriculture and see the historical wheat and barley cultivars that helped make Montana one of the top grain-producing states in the nation.
*The Living History Farm is free to all for the entire season! While the main museum will still charge regular admission fees, MOR members can bring out-of-town guests, friends, and visitors to the Living History Farm for free!
