100 Years of Carter County

Virtual Exhibit

Celebrate the first 100 Years of Carter County

In 2017, Carter County, Montana celebrated its centennial year. To commemorate this occasion, the Carter County Museum has compiled a collection of photographs taken throughout Carter County's storied history, from pioneers and paleontology to present-day rodeo and ranching families. Within this collection, the viewer can choose to explore scenic history of the Medicine Rocks and Custer National Forest, or take a look at the human occupation of the county, from the timber industry to bucking horses. Founded in 1885, Ekalaka, the county seat, is featured prominently, as are images from dinosaur and archaeology digs conducted by members of the Carter County Museum, Montana's oldest county museum.
