Manhattan Potato Festival

Posted by Sacajawea Hotel on Jul 11, 2019 9:00:00 AM

 

Small-town charm runs rampant at the Manhattan Potato Festival. Manhattan has been around since the mid-1800s and is a town that has been home to a diverse range of ranchers and farmers. An earthquake in 1925 destroyed many of the town’s original buildings, so the main drag has a distinct 1920s feel. Old US 10 passes right through Main Street, and there’s a whole lot of quaintness to check out. Immigrants from the Netherlands arrived in the Gallatin Valley in the 1800s, ready to grow barley for nearby malters, and the agricultural industry grew from there.

Uncover a Pioneering Past at Bannack Days

Posted by Sacajawea Hotel on Jul 4, 2019 9:00:00 AM

 

Held the third weekend in July, Bannack Days celebrates the history of this local ghost town, a testament to days gone by and the frontier past that is still alive in the region. The town was founded in 1862 when John White struck gold (well, panned it) in Grasshopper Creek. Prospectors made a rush to Bannack, hoping to strike it rich too, and with them came enterprising businessmen of the age ready to profit off of the influx of people. The town began to grow.

Posted by Sacajawea Hotel on May 9, 2019 8:00:00 AM

As the county seat of Madison County, Montana, Virginia City keeps the history of the Victorian Era alive.

Today, it’s vibrant display of living history with a thriving community of reenactors and local historians. Roam the town, check out the shops, and still make it back to Three Forks in time for a nightcap before bed. Here’s what you should add to the agenda when you take a day trip to Virginia City.
