The Wolf Point Area Historical Society Museum is currently located in the basement of the Roosevelt County Library. Hours are 10 AM – 5:00 PM, Monday thru Friday, during the months of June through August. Plans are to move the museum to a better location on Highway #2 sometime during 2007.
This museum features displays of antiques, heirlooms and artifacts of the early-day settlers, along with showcases of Indian culture. A life-size statue of cowboy artist Charles M. Russell made by a Wolf Point High School Art Instructor, Archie Graber, for a Hall of Fame contest in Washington, D.C. resides in the museum. The statue placed second in the nation.
Items on display include Sherman T. Cogswell’s 1910 National cash register, antique printing presses, pendulum clocks, two 1890 Edison phonographs and cylinder records, the 1913 oak dresser from the first rooming house in Wolf Point, a 1915 Bible, and an excellent arrowhead collection and paintings by local artists Tenny DeWitt, Magnhild Holum and Marlene Toves.
The newest addition to the museum is 1918 National cash register that was built for N.J. Walters, Jr. who owned and operated Walters Drug Store, which was the first drug store in Wolf Point in 1913. It was returned to Wolf Point by Mr. Ken Granby of Helena, Montana who had used it in his barbershop for a period of 10 years. He had acquired the register in 1972-73 from a Ben Hopkins who owned Parchen Drug Store in downtown Helena. After all these years, he felt that it should go back to its home in Wolf Point.
