the historic montana room 

a one-of-a-kind experience

our montana room is undergoing changes in late 2023.

please contact us if you plan to visit to ensure it's accessible. 

the montana room is our unique collection of local and state historical documents. we have original and rare manuscripts, photographs, and records dating to the origin of miles city in 1876 - and even earlier! 

this valuable collection is not circulated and may not be taken from the library. our librarians are happy to assist with research! 

"the montana room seems to appeal to many people - both serious researchers and casual information seekers."

~ mrs. alice gulden herauf, april 1990
