A Narrative History of the Montana Heritage Project

Sharing Libby’s History: Framed Historical Photographs

Jeff Gruber

Libby High School


Students spent an afternoon at the Heritage Museum learning how to use historical photographs as a research tool. They were each given a photograph to analyze and then look up in the catalogue. They then looked up the event documented in their photograph in the bound newspaper collection. After completing the exercise students were allowed to chose a historic photograph from the Heritage Museum’s collection to present to a local business. Using the research techniques they had learned, the students wrote a brief description of the event or time period recorded in the image to display with the photograph. Twenty framed images were placed in various locations around Libby.
