The Western Heritage Center invites you to a new fundraising event, VOICES OF THE PAST, a celebration of our community featuring living history performances.  Seven actors will portray important figures from our local past, including Sheriff James T. Webb, madam Olive Warren, and suffragist Hazel Hunkins Hallinan.  Performers will share real events from the lives of these influential Montanans, with performances that are humorous, heart-breaking, adventurous, and intriguing. The actors will also answer questions and interact directly with guests.

Tickets are available for time slots from 10 am – 12:30 pm on both Saturdays (Oct. 23 & 30).  Guests will be able to choose their own route, attending whichever performances they wish.  Actors will perform at the gravesites; if you have ADA accommodation needs, please contact Lauren Hunley at (406) 256-6809 x134 or lauren@ywhc.org.  We will have designated handicapped parking and those who need to travel by car throughout the cemetery will be accommodated.

This will be a family-friendly event, and none of the actors will use inappropriate language, but parents/guardians should be advised that historical topics such as murder and prostitution will be addressed.

Free parking will be available for all guests within the Cemetery; once you enter, volunteers will provide information and a printed map.

There are no public restrooms available at Mountview Cemetery.

Big thanks to our host, the Billings Parks Department, and to our major sponsors, ExxonMobil, Mayor Bill & Anne Cole, and Smith Funeral Chapels, for making this event a reality!
