    Town: Troy History

    Former President Teddy Roosevelt's initials can be found on the side of the current city hall building... Because of the deep ravines, dense forests and the steep mountains that characterize this area, the southern loop of the Kootenai was known as the Montana Wilds. Its ruggedness along with the fear of Indians kept it unsettled until gold was discovered in the mid 1860s. But not until the Great Northern railroad establish a freight division on the current town site, did it really begin to flourish. http://www.cityoftroymontana.com/history.html View full record
  3. James R. Meade, in making an address before the state historical society in December 1904, gave the following interesting bit of Saline Valley history. Mr. Meade made a hunting trip up this valley in 1859, starting from Salina, a small village then of about a dozen houses, and has said the the drift along the bluffs and in the trees indicated that the flood of 1858 had covered the valley above Lincoln to a depth of 10 to 15 feet deep. The people of Salina tried to induce him to settle there. He says: "Colonel Phillips offered me one-sixteenth of the town site and vacant claim adjoining, if I would locate and help build the town. I was out for sport and adventure, not for town building. I replied that I already owned all of Saline County for a hundred miles west, with a million head of livestock, and that was enough. For information I was directed to a young man named Spilman, who had been up the Saline to a large tributary which he descibed as very miry near its mouth, and that brief conversation gave his name to the stream which it still bears. The Saline river at that time was unexplored, and there were no names for the tributaries on the north side; so for conveniece I named them, and by those names they are still known. http://www.lincolncohistmuseum.com/ Kyne House Complex and Topsy SchoolOpen: Tues, Thur 1-4 pmSat 10 am - 1 pmby Donation216 W LincolnPhone: 785-524-9997For hours when not open call: 524-4664 View full record
  4. The Society was formed in October of 1968. In 1970, the City Council leased 5 lots along Cottonwood Creek (the old Washington Water Power grounds) to the Society. This allowed the hiring of an architect and beginning of actual construction. Funding came from membership dues, donations and a generous gift from George Kloster (a Harrington farmer). With construction and landscaping completed, the Museum was opened and dedicated on July 15, 1972. This was also the first Pioneer Days. The Museum portrays the evolution of Lincoln County. Starting with Indian artifacts and displays, it looks at what brought people to Lincoln County, the evolution of farming, and the development of life in the area including the impact that railroading had to the area. Museum Hours May 1st through September 30th Monday through Saturday 9:00AM to 5:00PM. By appointment only the months of October 1st through April 30th http://www.davenportwa.org/davenportsite/davenporthistoricalsociety.html View full record

  6. Few sites in the nation encompass the breadth of history seen at the Fort Stanton Historic Site. Early cultures lived along the Bonito River, leaving behind rich archaeological evidence of human occupation. Spanish and Mexican settlers established communities in the nearby area, long before the United States sent the military west to protect settlers journeying to the region from the indigenous Apache Indians who claimed the lands as their own. Named for Captain Henry W. Stanton, the Fort was established in 1855 and operated as a military fortification through 1896. The Fort Stanton Historic Site is a must-see attraction when visiting Lincoln County. Nestled on Highway 220 that bisects the Billy the Kid Scenic Byway, New Mexico’s newest historic site features over 155 years of southwestern history ranging from its initial creation as a military garrison to its significance as the first tuberculosis hospital in the state, to an internment camp for German seaman during World War II. http://fortstanton.org/ View full record

  8. Welcome to the Lincoln County Historical Website! Once one of the wildest of all western towns, Lincoln is considered by many historians to be the most authentic old west town remaining in the United States. The single road through town was once described as "the most dangerous street in America". Among the many Lincoln landmarks is the Murphy/Dolan Store, which became the Lincoln courthouse and jail, which then became famous when Billy the Kid escaped in 1881, killing two deputies in the process. Legend has it--one of the bullet holes from Billy's gun still decorates the courthouse wall. http://lincolncountyhistoricalsociety.vpweb.com/ View full record

  10. Lincoln Historic Site is unique in that it manages most of the historical buildings in the community of Lincoln.

Most of the buildings in the community are representative of the Territorial Style of adobe architecture in the American Southwest. http://www.nmhistoricsites.org/lincoln Hours and Days of Operation: Open 8:30am to 4:30pm 7 days a week.

There is no charge to visit the museum. Conservation is an integral part of the museum's goals.
  14. The Lincoln County Historical Association (LCHA) was founded in 1954 by noted local artist Mildred Burrage. Our mission is to collect, preserve and interpret the history of Lincoln County, Maine, which once extended from Brunswick to Canada. Key to our work is the stewardship of three historic buildings: the 1761 Pownalborough Court House in Dresden, the 1811 Old Jail in Wiscasset, and the 1754 Chapman-Hall House in Damariscotta. Our three museums feature collections of textiles and costumes, tools, furniture, baskets, housewares, photographs, maps, manuscripts, and other ephemera that help to tell Lincoln County's stories. The buildings, with the help of our docents, also tell real human stories, of law and order, crimes and punishments, and the lives of residents as our towns became settled communities. http://www.lincolncountyhistory.org/
  15. Chartered in 1978, the Nobleboro Historical Society has a growing membership of about 200. Programs of special interest are presented during the year.
