All of the resources available at the Western Heritage Center (WHC) are used for sharing and interpreting the history of the Yellowstone River valley and Northern High Plains. We consistently present new research and programs about the people, places, and events immediate to us. This makes us mindful of the richness of our history and more aware of our own surroundings – making all of us more aware of our own home.  Travelers visit us to learn the history of the Yellowstone River Valley, giving them a base for which to explore further. As a proactive institution, we identify community needs early and seize opportunities that allow us to serve our visitors and community to the best of our ability.

Please support the museum’s on-going work. Thank you for your consideration.
