Summer in the valley

It is not a typical summer by any stretch.  But if you stop by the Historical Village, you can still laze in the cool grass under the trees appreciating a bit of calmness as the children swing nearby.  Although the museum buildings aren’t opeIMG_8556n to the public this year, the grounds beckon.  Locals hang out there with picnics and to have a lovely space for children. Visitors from out of the area stop by to stretch their legs and look at the old buildings, learn a bit about at our community’s history.

Since the museum isn’t open this year, it means less income from sales and donations to maintain the Historical Village.  We are currently in the midst of our annual membership drive, which this year is more important than ever.  If you received our letter in the mail reminding you it is time to donate, please know your generosity is much appreciated.  If you are new to the area and are interested in being a member and want to make a donation, please send your contact information along with you check to:  Tobacco Valley Board of History   PO Box 1452  Eureka, MT 59917.

Thank you.

I mostly live in Eureka, Montana and write two blogs. One is for the Tobacco Valley Board of History, a group composed of the most remarkable older women who quilt weekly to raise funds to maintain the Historical Village. I had to capture their stories with words and photos. And when I began a traveling bookstore as a small business, well, it only made sense to write about that too.
