Overview Service & Activities
About When you enter the Musselshell Valley Historical Museum, please sign in on the original register that once recorded early day guests of the Adams Hotel in nearby Lavina, Montana. In the surrounding showrooms are paintings, quilts and other works by local artists and photographs of early Roundup, Montana. Also you'll find a collection of bronze that was cast at the foundry, once located in Roundup. The one-room schoolhouse and dress shops complete with millinery were common during Roundup's early days. Coal mining boomed in the Roundup area after the coming of the Milwaukee Railroad in 1908. Our reproduction of a coal shaft is reminiscent of the mining era. A vast network of tunnels still lies beneath the surrounding Bull Mountains. A collection of local Indian artifacts, fossils, petrified wood, and crystals will intrigue the rock hound and casual observer alike. You'll see the original operating room of Roundup's first hospital once situated in the old Vicars Building. Also, take a look at the beautiful treasures of the Catholic Church formerly located in nearby Klein, Montana. Pictures and mementos of World War I recognize the local residents who formed a large contingent of the US Army Company B. You'll enter the five room 1890 home. Its furnishings are typical of a modest residence of the time, including a portable bath and an iron bed enhanced by embroidered pillow shams. Explore the natural science exhibit and view birds and wildlife that are native to the surrounding hills and prairies. Watch out for the rattlers and bobcat!! On the second floor you can step back into the homestead days at the general store and post office once located in Rothiemay, Montana. Before leaving the museum, step outside and saunter past the blacksmith shop and then to the Northfield Cattle Company ranch house. Built three miles east of Roundup in 1884, the ranch house was the home for two British cattle lords. Also located outside the museum is the old print shop of the Roundup Record-Tribune. Founded in 1908, it is still publishing the town's newspaper today. Check-out our display of a 1932 Pietenpol airplane. Call 406-323-1662 or 406-323-2463
