A Short Introduction to the Site

Upper Swan Valley Historical Society Museum celebrates the history of the wild and beautiful Swan Valley. The Swan Valley was one of the last places in the nation to be homesteaded. It was opened for homesteading in 1906 with 200 claims. Check out many unique and well thought out exhibits focusing on the area's logging and mountain living. There are several restored community buildings including the original 1940s Liquid Louie's Bar.

This volunteer run museum is free to the public and is a terrific stop off of HWY 83 on your way to Glacier National Park.
