On the edge of the scenic badlands and the home of the moss agate, the Prairie County Museum began in 1975 in the historic 1916 State Bank of Terry building and has grown into a complex that includes the 1906 State Bank of Terry building, the only steam heated outhouse this side of the Mississippi, a pioneer homestead, the Burlington Northern train depot, an old red wooden caboose and the famous Evelyn Cameron Gallery. The museum complex is the essence of the old pioneer life, the way it was lived, how it was endured, and how we thrived in eastern Montana. The Prairie County Museum houses historic files for research of events and families, including obituaries. The museum has an extensive collection of photographs which can be reprinted for a nominal fee. The Larsen Memorial Building is new and houses many historical artifacts.
Please join our volunteers as they take you back in history.
