Montana History Conference

September 28, 2023 @ 8:00 am - September 30, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

50th Annual Montana History Conference

Get ready for Building on the Past, the 50th annual Montana History Conference, September 28-30, 2023 at the Delta Hotels Colonial in Helena – the same location as the first conference in 1974. MTHS librarian Harriet Meloy, archivist Brian Cockhill, and the Council to Preserve Montana History organized the first Montana History Conference, naming it Montana and the West: New Directions. Then, as now, the conference endeavored to explore underrepresented facets of regional history and to recognize that the past is a continuum—not a dividing line—and its people, events, successes, and failures perpetually impact our present and future.
