Keeping the Swan Valley Museum open requires a team of dedicated volunteers, inspired members and consistent financial support in order to have a viable operation and be able to pay the many expenses such as electricity, heat, maintenance, insurance, taxes and upgrades. To this end we are actively growing our membership and inviting new donors along on our exciting journey. As the saying goes “many hands make light work” and this endeavor is no different. We invite you to begin, or continue, your support of the USVHS through membership, volunteering or donations (one time, monthly, yearly or lifetime options). We are proud to call Swan Valley our home and look forward to preserving our rich history! Thank you for making a difference! Please contact Steve Lamar, President at (406) 754-2745 or

Thank you to our seasoned museum-staffing veterans and all our new volunteers, who are very interested in our area history and museum and are valuable assets! Our membership today stands at over 200. In 2017, we had 98 people volunteering a total of 5,576 hours.
Awesome performance and support from our community. We REALLY appreciate all of you!
