Overview Service & Activities
About During the late 1960s, a group of Sheridan County residents realized they had to make an effort to capture some of the historical flavor, fashions, and fixtures of our early days, before those items were lost forever. The result was the Sheridan County Museum. There are all sorts of early century items from the original Dooley Post Office boxes, to depression era typewriters, irons, radios, and our very own 1920s general store. There are wonderful photographs of our colorful and historic past, fossils, a dress shop, and even an early school room and dentist office. Visitors to the museum may notice the rock facing the building. These rocks were provided by the descendants of early day homesteaders of Sheridan County whose parents and grandparents had gathered them into piles to clear their lands for crops. Over the years, lichen has grown on these rocks, fed by the sun, rain, and air, making courageous homesteaders, rugged cattle-men, determined roughnecks working on towering oil rigs in frigid weather, small-town merchants...They've all played roles in building society in this corner of Montana. They are remembered and treasured in our growing county museum.
