High Line Heritage House Museum
The High Line Heritage House Museum warmly welcomes you to Havre and Hill County, Montana! Experience the grace of days past by touring North Central Montana's most elegant historic site. The High Line Heritage House Museum, affectionately known as "The Cottage", is located in the historic Boone and Dalrymple home. Listed as a Contributing Property at the cusp of the Havre Residential Historic District, it is the oldest single-family home in the Historic District. It is also the home of Miss Emily Ann Mayer, Executive Director, Curator and your professional interpreter of The Cottage. This is a "house museum with a twist", where tasteful antique inspired furnishings of recent vintage are carefully combined with genuine antiques and artifacts painstakingly collected over many years. These valuable pieces of history are lovingly paired with photographs, art, and documents to interpret area history, much of which is not interpreted at other local sites.
The Cottage is open Saturdays and Sundays beginning Memorial Day weekend through the end of the year. Tours begin on Saturdays at 10:00am with the last tour leaving at 5:00pm. Sunday tours begin at 8:00am with the last tour leaving at 3:00pm. The Cottage is closed holidays and Thanksgiving weekend (to prepare for Christmas at the Cottage). Cost for the 2012 season are: $8.00 for adults and $4.00 for children 10 and under with accompanying adult. Only cash is accepted. Canadian currency is always at par with legal Canadian ID. Those with young children and /or who are allergic to cats are strongly advised to call before going on the tour!
The Cottage serves as headquarters for the Hill County Centennial Celebration events throughout 2012, National Historic Preservation Month activities in May, Christmas Cottage in December, and all Historic Havre Strolls conducted by appointment only. There are three tours of the Havre Residential Historic District, one of the Old Downtown Havre and a Combination Old Townsite/Downtown Havre tour. Please ask Miss Emily or visit the Cottage's website for more information on these and other services offered by High Line Heritage Resources.
