Through a grant from the NHPRC at the National Archives, archivists are processing 1,500 linear feet of records from Montana state government departments to make them accessible for research.
They’ve completed work on records from the Department of Transportation and have moved on to the Department of Environmental Quality and the Department of Natural Resources.
The Montana Historical Society Research Center holds the nation’s largest collection of published materials pertinent to the study of Montana’s history.
The Montana Historical Society also holds extensive manuscript, photographic, and artifact collections pertaining to the fur trade, exploration, mining, railroads, early settlement, and other topics related to Montana and the west.
Archives materials can be searched through their online catalog and Northwest Digital Archives.
