Big Sandy’s Historical Museum

Many people drive right through Big Sandy, MT on US Hwy 87 without planning a stop. My advice – take a break and visit the museum as you are out and about this summer!

What The Hay – What An Event!

The Montana Bale Trail – What The Hay event is always held the first Sunday after Labor Day and it is certainly a date worth noting on your future calendars.

Some What The Hay Competition

Aha! The latest word on the street is that someone, who looks a lot like Art Taft, has been secretly building an entry for the What The Hay competition Sunday, September 12. Nobody would have known except for a garage door inadvertently left open. Although this photo doesn’t show the entire entry you have to […]
