A Short Introduction to the Site

Pioneer buildings were moved to save them from drowning when Libby Dam created Lake Koocanusa in the 1970s. Browse Fewkes General Store for historical artifacts. And if you buy a locally made quilt you’ll be helping provide funds for village upkeep.

View the history of the Tobacco Valley and stroll through late 1890s and early 1900s buildings. The Historical Village is a collection of buildings from around the Tobacco Valley, in NW Montana.

Full Description of the Historical Site or Museum

Visit the Fewkes General Store Museum, the Iowa Flats One Room School, the old Eureka Library. You can also view the first cabin built in Eureka (1893 ), the Baney House built in 1898 at a ranch just North of Eureka, the Rexford Catholic Church built in 1920's.
