New Exhibition from Archives & Special Collections

7 December 2007 by Donna McCrea

Explore Montana’s mercantile history in Before Box Stores and Supermarkets, a new exhibition on display in the Theta Rho Room on Level 4 of the Mansfield Library.

Using items and images drawn from Archives & Special Collections, the exhibition highlights the history of commerce in Montana – from the founding of the area’s earliest trading post exactly 200 years ago, to the early twentieth-century mercantiles and general stores that were mainstays of their communities. The display includes early maps and accounts of trading posts, turn-of-the-century photographs, and advertisements featuring both everyday necessities (coffee – 2lbs for 65 cents) and the latest fashions.

Before Box Stores and Supermarkets will be on display through mid-February. For additional information please contact Archives & Special Collections: (406) 243-2053 or
