The Glacier County Historical Museum, 45-minutes from Glacier National Park, offers you an authentic experience in our 1935 oil worker’s house. No frills, just history. The oil worker’s house has a living room, kitchen, and bedroom as well as a shed addition for front and rear entry. A historian-led tour and discussion is included. After the historian’s visit, you can continue in the 1930s with music and radio shows, games, and magazines. A full breakfast is served in the morning.

The space
A restroom is only a short walk from the house. No showers are available at this time.

A historian will meet guests at the house for a discussion of life in the oil camp of Santa Rita from the perspective of the Hegg family. Learn about Mel’s place of work on a cable tool rig. Learn the difference between an oil house and an oil shack. What did families eat, do for entertainment, or wear? How was laundry done? This chat will be around the dining room table set up for entertaining in 1930s style with a place of treats and water heated on the gas stove for tea or coffee.
