Visit to The Quilting Hen

For those who don’t know, The Quilting Hen is an incredibly unique quilt shop located one mile north of Carter, MT. The location is…well…in the middle of a grain farm, and very easy to find.

Firearms Collection at Russell Museum

Several years ago the Browning Firearms Collection was tucked away in the basement in a far corner of the C. M. Russell Museum in Great Falls, MT. Now it’s one of the first installations you see after you leave the reception desk in the lobby. The other day I had a chance to visit and […]

Russell Museum Impresses Journalist

One of the best parts of my job is escorting journalists around north central Montana. We recently hosted someone from the United Kingdom who had never been to Montana before.
