Groups press proposal for first national heritage area in Montana

The first potential national heritage area in Montana has moved one step closer to reality with advocates releasing a study identifying unique cultural and historic features in Cascade and Chouteau counties.


Big Sky National Heritage Area Inc. recently released its draft feasibility study for public comment. The study touts a number of sites in Cascade and a portion of Chouteau counties that when considered as a whole, deserve recognition as a heritage area. First Peoples Buffalo Jump near Ulm; artist C.M. Russell’s log cabin studio and home in Great Falls; the townsite of Fort Benton; and the Lewis and Clark portage route in and near Great Falls are already designated as national historic landmarks.
