Brother Van House Museum

The Brother Van House Museum is the only Montana home of William Wesley Van Orsdel, fondly known as Brother Van. He lived in this century old house from 1910 until his death in 1919. Tour the home with a docent to retrace Brother Van's life who came to Montana in 1872 to "sing and preach and encourage people to be good." Stories of his adventures will raise the hair on your neck and bring a tear to your eye. Visit the bedroom with Brother Van's own furnishings to have a sense of what it was like to live in Montana at the turn of the 20th Century. Getting to know Brother Van is learning about the settlement of Montana and the part that the "Best Loved Man in Montana" played in making this the wonderful state that it is.
