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 and learn about North Central Montana history like never before. The High Line Heritage House Museum, affectionately known as The Cottage, is located in the historic circa 1895 Boone and Dalrymple Home, the oldest single-family dwelling in the Havre Residential Historic District. It is also the home of Miss Emily Ann Mayer, Executive Director and 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 during Visitors Season Saturdays and Sundays beginning Memorial Day weekend through the last weekend in September. Tours begin on Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. with the last tour leaving at 5:00 p.m. Sunday tours begin at 8:00 a.m. with the last tour leaving at 3:00 p.m. The Holiday Season begins the first weekend in October through the last weekend in December. Tours begin Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. with the last tour leaving at 5:00 p.m. and Sundays tours begin at noon with the last tour leaving at 3:00 p.m. The Cottage is closed holidays; September 19-22, 2013; Thanksgiving weekend (to prepare for Christmas at the Cottage); and December 7th, 2013.
