Grow with the Gatchell

The museum may be closed to the public but the staff want to help out! Knowing how many people are at home, we plan to share resources and videos which we hope you will check out!  Even better, is if you would participate with us.

“Grow With the Gatchell” will be a series of videos that will expand your regional history knowledge. Episodes will be free to stream on our YouTube channel. Features will cover topics such as the Johnson County Cattle War, the Bozeman Trail, the WWII B-17 crash in the Bighorn Mountains, etc.

This (mostly) light-hearted and fun series is geared towards the young and young at heart.
