Trails of 1885


With so much history in this area, it was necessary for a group of local folks to get together in 1979 and found the Frenchman Butte Museum. It was their desire to preserve and pass on the history of this region.

The museum is based upon a collection of guns, arrowheads and other pioneer artifacts gathered by the late Lloyd Furman, who spent many years collecting artifacts. Originally, it was housed in the restored CNR Station, but it quickly outgrew that space.  As a result, a large quonset was erected - the Lloyd Furman Building. The site has continued to grow with additional buildings being added as needed.
