Our big yellow tipi, is out front to highlight our connection with the first nations people from the other side of the mountain as well as our hunting history. Inside our 1920's horse barn you will find a different display in each (double) team stall showcasing some point of our history.

Its like walking into an old barn. Displays are in the original horse stalls, named after the teams that occupied them. One of the stalls is the society office and the grainery/tack room is the utility room. Each stall has a theme, and displays will be changed periodically to feature culture of the local area.


The Seeley Lake Historical Society was established in 1998 with Articles of Incorporation filed May 18, 1999. 501(c)(3) nonprofit status was gained in 2003. The museum opened to the public in May 2004.
